A late leveller from substitute Alan Brazil kept Berwick in touch with Stranraer in the hunt for the final Third Division play-off spot.
The visitors took an early lead when John Neil lashed the ball into the roof of the net from 20 yards.
Damon Gray passed up an opportunity for Berwick in a game of few chances, firing over from close range.
However, Brazil slotted the ball home from six yards following good support play from Stuart Callaghan.
