Herne Bay won 2 and drew 1 of the 6 rinks played against Whitstable but a 14-shot win for Sam Hardy, George Johnson, Bob Baldwin and Jim Watson gave Bay the overall victory.
Bay already had a healthy lead over Deal going into the 2nd leg of the annual trophy and winning 3 of the 4 triples by 25 shots ensured the trophy remained in Bay's cabinet.
