West Essex doubled their lead 15 minutes into the second half when Maamoon Khan slotted home a header from a James Bromley corner to make it 2-0.
Twenty minutes later Barkingside went close, but the visitors countered their attack and added a third through Gray, who was picked out by Michael Mignot inside the box.
While, league rivals Redbridge lost 1-0 to Enfield at home.
