TWO late goals from Jordan Follows ended Port Talbot Town's mini-unbeaten run.
The result would have been a disappointment for Steelmen boss Mark Jones, who has seen his side climb into the top six of the Welsh Premier League after showing great recent form.
And he would have been hopeful of that run continuing once David Brooks grabbed a sixth-minute opener from close range.
And Port Talbot should have added to their lead before half-time with Jeff White and Daniel Thomas going close.
But the visitors hit back smartly after the break and former Swansea City man Matty Collins fired in an equaliser three minutes after the restart.
Port Talbot put themselves back in front again soon after when Brooks went on a darting run down the left before sending a precise cross to the far post for White to head home.
But again Aber responded as Glyndwr Hughes squeezed in a far-post header from Collins's deep free-kick.
Dylan Blain's weak back-pass saw Follows's effort clip the upright.
Although Wyn Thomas's 35-yard attempt failed to threaten Port Talbot keeper David Burnett, Aber were looking more threatening inside the area as Stuart Jones sent a strong volley wide from a corner.
But former Llanelli striker Follows would punish Port Talbot, coming into his own in the final 15 minutes.
Ghosting into space, the Aber striker composed himself before drilling in a shot past Burnett as Aber led for the first time before adding to his tally late on with another well-taken finish to leave the Blues empty-handed.
