Maidenhead & Bray produced a final day Houdini act to escape relegation and condemn rivals Marlow to the drop in their place.
Bray were in the bottom two in TVL Division 2A coming into the clash but edged above their playing rivals thanks to a six-wicket win.
Put into bat Marlow began well enough with Phil Lines making 51, but the run-outs of Graeme Paskins (29) and Ted Patmore (31) turned the game in Bray's favour.
Joe Barker took 3-28 as Bray tore through Marlow's lower order, leaving them all out on 195.
The home side then defied their struggles at the crease this season, reaching their target with relative ease as Sachin Moudgil top scored with 74. Support came from the likes of Pieter Ethan Walker (26), Jeevan Singh (23) and Brett Van Niekerk (36no).
Bray collected 20 points for the win, enough to leapfrog Marlow and push them into the bottom two.
