Scott BarrowSCOTT Barrow's stunning 30-yard free-kick gave Port Talbot the upper hand in their local derby at home to Neath.
And another goal three minutes later from Neil Thomas sent the Steelmen leapfrogging their opponents into fourth place in the table.
The two goals lit-up an otherwise drab affair in front of live S4C cameras at the GenQuip Stadium.
After Drew Fahiya had been brought down after a mazy run on 40 minutes, Barrow stepped-up to send a rising free-kick into the top corner.
And Fahiya's hold-up play on the edge of the box was followed by a lay-off to Thomas, who hammered the second from 18 yards beyond the grasp of Wyn Walters.
The Eagles rarely threatened, their best effort a stinging Richard Ingram shot which was well parried by home keeper Lee Kendall.
Bangor City took the spoils in the Gwynedd derby at Farrar Road, but it took a last-minute goal from Jamie Reed, his second of the game, to ensure Porthmadog left empty-handed.
Reed had earlier opened City's account in the 25th-minute and the 2-0 win saw them climb to eighth place in the table.
