Football: Stranraer s-Martin by Gers late show.
BERWICK took their unbeaten run to 10 games but they left it late.
With 12 minutes on the clock they were trailing by two goals and looked likely to go home pointless. Then goals from Neil Bennett and Martin Neil earned them a share of the points.
The visitors spent most of the first half failing to put pressure on the home goal and Stranraer took the lead with only three minutes to the half time whistle.
On loan John Bradford hit a 20-yard free kick onto the Berwick bar, pounced to fire goalwards and Paul Blair raced in to slip the ball over the line just to make sure.
And two minutes into the second half the home side knocked in their second when Bradford returned a pass to striker Ian Harty who coolly lobbed Willie McCulloch.
But in the 64th minute, Blair failed to secure a rebound from the six-yard box which proved to be a costly miss.
With only 12 minutes remaining, Berwick began to look stronger and Neil Bennett put a long range lob over Mark McGeown into the net.
This score revived the visitors and Martin Neil earned the draw with a shot a minute from the end.
