Both teams were chasing victory in order to put distance between themselves and the Premier Division relegation zone.
And it was Pontblyddyn who took command as they won the toss and elected to bat, Jones (123) and Chambers (123 not out) putting on a mammoth 166-run partnership for the third wicket.
Even when Jones, who struck 11 fours and six sixes, departed off the bowling of Mold skipper Usman Butt (3-69), Mark Neath blasted 37 from just 12 balls to help Pont post 348-5.
In reply, Mold slipped to 40-2, but JP van Aswegen (63) and Butt (58) helped rebuild their side’s innings with a 88-run partnership.
But both men were removed by Neath (6-29) and Ryan Harman pocketed 3-37 to see Mold bowled out for 202
