Griffin headed over from close range from Berry's corner, before capitalising on a poor clearance from the Weymouth keeper.
The striker calmly slotted the ball home from the edge of the box on 16 minutes to make it 1-0.
Cheltenham were having plenty of possession and player of the match Liz Dawson was linking up well with captain Dunleavy down the right hand side.
Despite Cheltenham's dominance, Weymouth levelled a minute before the break with well hit shot from outside of the area.
Cheltenham switched formation at the break and introduced Katie Walker at centre-half as Cheltenham again started brightly with both Reilly and Dunleavy forcing smart saves from the Weymouth keeper.
The lead was finally restored on 61 minutes when Reilly received Walker's knock down and was able to smash the ball into the net.
Substitute Sarah Haden scored her first goal for Cheltenham in the 79th minute after good work from Reilly, rolling the ball past the keeper from close range.
Weymouth were awarded a late stoppage time penalty after a handball from Donaldson in the area. Lebbon got down well to save the spot kick but the rebound was turned in at the second attempt.
