A dramatic last kick equaliser earned Eyemouth a point at home to Burntisland on Saturday.

The Fishermen had started well, and after Windram went close Sean Phillips gave them the lead after only six minutes, turning in a cross from the right.

Later in the half Phillips had a shot saved by the keepers legs and Alan Jess scooped the ball over the bar.

At the start of the second half Burntisland had a penalty claim turned aside, but they drew level five minutes later through Ewan Fotheringham with a low drive.

The Shipyard took the lead in the 72nd minute when Sartarello rose above the Eyemouth defence to power home a header

Kieran Bullen then saw a shot hit the back of the net off the inside of a post to make it 2-2.

But the visitors took the lead for a second time with a piece of quick thinking at a corner.

Napier beat two men on the byeline and his shot from the narrowest of angles found its way into the net despite the valiant efforts of the Eyemouth defence to keep it out.

With the game going into injury time Burntisland thought they were going to leave with all three points, but in the 94th minute Stewart Wright was on hand to fire the ball in with what proved to be the very last kick of the game.

Eyemouth United: Mutch, Wood, Jess, Windram, Wright, Drummond, Bullen, McCrudden (Greenlees), Phillips, Brown (Speirs), Waugh (Paxton).
