The hosts opened the scoring in the 33rd minute although Synners will feel aggrieved with a man coming back from an offside position and being flagged, being fouled. The Referee awarded Roofing the free-kick which DENNIS KNIGHT sailed over keeper Liam Gibbs and in.
Billingham levelled the game up from the penalty spot in added-on time at the end of the half after Anthony Myers clipped Callum Hassan in the box; JOHN SEATON scoring the resulting penalty.
Half-time: Jarrow Roofing 1, Synners 1
Both sides had good spells in the second period; Roofing's David Palmer forced a good save out of Gibbs and Hassan for Synners going close a couple of times, the game though remained all square.
