The Seagulls had to be content with a share of the points at the Carlisle Grounds as their neighbours maintained an unbeaten run.
The game was full of drama, with both keepers busy and former Bray man Stephen McGuinness stopping a Dylan McGlade penalty which would have restored the lead Jake Ellis had given them midway through the first half.
18-year-old Vilius Labutis had levelled matters early in the second period, and from then no quarter was given on either side.
Cabinteely lost another former Bray man, Daniel Blackbyrne, after he clashed with the home keeper soon after the hour, and their late replacement of defender Jack Watson appeared also to be due to injury.
Bray came within inches of securing the full points in the final seconds of time added, when a Hugh Douglas header grazed McGuinness's crossbar.
