Half centuries from Grant Peisley and Michael Parton helped Caernarfon set up a winning score at Coed Helen.
The victory edged the Cofis up to second in Division Three, but credit was also due to Pontblyddyn, whose two teams both faced long trips on Bank Holiday Monday.
Pont 2nds sent a number of young players to Caernarfon to ensure they had a full team and the fixture went ahead.
