It leaves the pair tied on 30 points but Weston still have a game remaining against Suttonians and, should they take a point from that tie, will be crowned division two champions.
For so long the front runners, Suttonians' challenge finally came to an end on Saturday as Bray's Simon Cox showed his quality to net four times in a 4-2 win, Ian Martin and Conor Gillett with the goals in response, finishing off a disappointing second half of the season after a scintillating pre-Christmas run. Just one win since the turn of the year saw their lead dissipate and look set to end the season in fourth.
Avoca will face some kind of play-off no matter what happens in the final fixture of the season. Should Suttonians win, they could face a winner-takes-all fixture against Weston while defeat would see the Blackrock side challenge Railway Union.
Navan, meanwhile, after a promising first season under coach Stephen McGrath still end up with the wooden spoon in sixth place while Bray, for all their troubles, managed to leap-frog the Meath side on the final day of the season.
Saturday results: Weston 1 (Enda Tucker) Navan 0; Bray 4 (Simon Cox 4) Suttonians 2 (Ian Martin, Conor Gillett); Avoca w/o Bray scr
