The win sets Johnny McGarvey's side up for Sunday's clash with Swatragh. If Kevin Lynch's avoid defeat against Na Magha, a draw would see Lavey qualify as runners up by virtue of score difference.
Lavey were without Fintan Bradley and a hamstring is likely to keep him out of Sunday's clash, as the Erin's Own face into crunch knock-out games in both codes.
Deaglan Foley made a return from injury, but it wasn't enough for Na Magha to pick up a first win.
