Stranrer closed in on Division Two leaders Brechin thanks to a winning strike from Paul McManus.
The forward burst on to a 63rd-minute pass from Fraser Wright, raced away from two defenders and rolled the ball past goalkeeper Gary O'Connor.
The home side made a flying start as Darren Smith blasted home a spectacular 20-yard shot after just four minutes.
But Stranraer levelled immediately as Danny Fox turned in a great delivery from Kevin Finlayson.
