The Spartans had triumphed in both meetings this season, including in the semi final which forced the Comets into the preliminary final, however they hit back with a 60-54 victory.
The Spartans went into the decider with an unchanged line-up from that semi final encounter, while the Comets team included Streaky Bay’s Damon Edmunds in the triples.
Ashley Halls recorded a 22-13 victory in the singles for the Comets, including a pivotal super end on his final end as he scored two shots which doubled to four and placed the Comets in a strong position.
It was a dramatic finish in the pairs, highlighted by the final end where the shot changed several times including a mixture of great draw bowls, drives and conversion shots.
The Spartans, helped by a super end, claimed a 28-14 victory which left the fate of the competition in the hands of the triples.
The Comets held a one-shot lead on the overall scoreboard with two ends remaining.
Comets’ player Josh Chopin drew two shots on the penultimate end and with a further shot added by Scott Thulborn the Comets took three shots and headed into the last with a 58-54 lead.
The Spartans used a super end to send the game into extra ends.
The Comets held their nerve to record a 24-13 triples win and a six-shot overall triumph.
