Town sneaked into a lead following a Rackham corner.
Etheridge caused confusion in the Bungay six-yard box, resulting in a visiting player putting the ball past his own keeper.
Early in the second half a Bungay player was rightly sent off for a kick-out on Hut.
This seemed to galvanise the away side that started to apply more pressure.
This paid off when Ward brushed off a home defender, his shot was turned onto the post by Hodges but an unfortunate Town player deflected into his own net, despite the best efforts of Page on the line.
Town lost their heads and just could not get their game going, despite a couple of dangerous runs from McCloy.
Town somewhat fortunately got their breakthrough following a Priest corner. Sharp rose well to loop a header into the opposite corner, an excellent finish.
The midfield of Plumstead, Rackham and Priest were working hard and supplied the strikers with some useful balls, with one being a notable and unexpected turn of pace from Sharp.
Town should have seen the game out but Bungay scored an equaliser in injury time following a sharp finish from Ward.
This was deserved for their endeavour. Town nearly got in truth an undeserved equaliser when sub O'Brien shot just over.
MoM: Sharp, good finish and looked dangerous with his new turn of pace.
