The singles were rounded off in emphatic style with Graeme Pow (22.54), powering to a 4-0 win.
Weston went into the pairs with a four point advantage at 38-34, but the lead was swiftly extended by English and Baker winning 2-0 and then Camp and Pow matched that score.
Weston lost the next two doubles matches which gave the home side hope, but 2-0 wins for Strong and Tyler and also Edge and Harris, saw Weston to an overall 46-38 win, a victory that keeps them top of the table.
There were maximums (180s) hit by Nick English, George Turnbull and Dave Baker. The Curry Gardens Man of the Match award went to Clive Strong.
