Crymych made it three wins in a row as they held off a strong challenge from a Haverfordwest side still seeking their first success of the season.
The Preseli men were 15-3 in front at half time as their pack held the edge and managed to resist a late comeback from the battling Blues.
Rhys Davies opened the scoring for Crymych with a penalty 15 minutes in.
He also added the extras ten minutes later when the Blues were penalised for diving in at a retreating scrum five and conceded a penalty try.
Ashley Sutton notched a penalty for Haverfordwest near the end of the first half but there was still time for Crymych to mount another close-range scrum attack from which No 8 Simon James ploughed over for an unconverted try.
The Blues made an excellent start after the oranges when Lewis Woods broke away from half-way and did well to score a solo try, but Crymych quickly responded with a try from Gavin Thomas after quick hands had put him in space.
Ashley Sutton then landed two Blues penalties, but there was another Crymych try through second row Andrew Phillips.
But then home forward Adam Clarke set up a tense finish with a try that took The Blues within six points of the visitors with 12 minutes to go.
But Crymych, who were reduced to 14 men when Rhys Davies was sent off, defended stoutly and the final whistle saw them going back through the Preselis with the vital league win.
