Peterhead 2, Elgin City 2
ELGIN City stopped the rot with a point at Peterhead but it could have been even better.
City led 2-0 at Balmoor with 13 minutes remaining after Dennis Wyness had given them a first half lead and Craig Gunn added a second on 77 minutes.
However, the Blue Toon hit back through Ryan McGeever two minutes later.
And Bryan Gilfillan levelled with six minutes remaining.
After four successive defeats in the league and cup competitions - including Wednesday's 5-1 humiliation at Formartine, Ross Jack will be pleased with an improved performance at their derby rivals.
However, City fans will be disappointed the team couldn't hold on for the three points.
Elgin will hope to get kick start their season properly next Saturday when they face Clyde at Borough Briggs.
City: Jellema, Niven, Duff, Crighton, Trialist, Cameron, Beveridge, McKinnon, Gunn, Wyness, Sutherland. Not used: McMullan, Harkins, MacLeod, Urquhart, Macaulay, McLean, Black.
