....goes on to Tuesday where the Badgers take on Thackley.
Brid`s final game of the season attracted a crowd of 495 and they saw Craig Hogg give the home side a 15th minute lead.
Carl Snowden equalised for Retford on the half-hour mark and Karl Slack`s 65th minute effort looked to have won it for the Badgers, until Billy Logan popped up with a last-gasp equaliser to leave Retford needing to beat the Dennyboys on Tuesday.
Thackley warmed up for the challenge by winning 2-0 at Parkgate with goals from Delroy White right on half-time and Darrell Kendall 4 minutes from time.
Brighouse Town maintained their hopes of finishing third after edging a nine-goal thriller at Lincoln Moorlands Railway, who are down.
Danny Hull gave Brighouse a 19th minute lead that Tom Garrick cancelled out after 37 minutes.
Two minutes later the visitors were back in front through Sam Ackroyd and they extended that on 56 minutes with Ackroyd`s second.
Greg Porter made it 4-1 on 68 minutes but Tom Bachelor reduced the deficit 3 minutes later, only for Tom Matthews to make it 5-2 just a couple of minutes later.
But the home side made Brighouse sweat by pulling two more back through Jake Thompson and Sean Cann in the final 7 minutes.
Elsewhere, Paul Ashton, David Buck and Henry Sibenge helped Armthorpe Welfare to a 3-1 home win over Pickering Town, Rob Branagan and Paul Lavender were on target as Maltby Main beat bottom-markers Selby Town, and Will Mellors-Blair scored the winner 18 minutes from time as Long Eaton United edged out hosts Hall Road Rangers by the odd goal in five.
Handsworth were crowned Division One champions and Glasshoughton Welfare joined them in winning a promotion place on Saturday.
Handworth won 2-0 at Worksop Parramore with goals from Scott Bates in the 2nd and 57th minute, while Glasshoughton beat AFC Emley 3-2 away, coming back from being 2-0 down to win, courtesy of a Sean Hazeldon own goal after 68 minutes, Steve Bennett on 84 minutes and Andy Seed in the last minute of normal time.
