The scores were levelled eight minutes later when Gavin Norman scored for the Pedlars from the penalty spot after Andrew Hunter was pulled down in the box.
Matthew Kenny came on in the 70th minute, for Keith Polski, with plans to change the dynamics of the game but Yarmouth notched up another in the 78th minute.
It could have been three, but once again Brookes came to Swaffham's rescue with a quality save in the dying minutes of the game.
Meanwhile, Swaffham Reserves played Thorpe Village in the first round of the Norfolk Junior Cup and after a goal-less first half went down 3-0.
The Reserves host Hoveton Wherrymen under lights on Friday evening (7.30pm kick-off, entrance �1, 50p under-16/concessions).
The A-team kept honours even away to Dereham Town A with a 1-1 scoreline.
Mark Blockwell scored the goal for the Pedlars.
On Saturday, the A team play Bridgham United at Shoemakers Lane (3pm).
The team's thanks go to the George Hotel and the Greyhound Inn for again providing after-match food and refreshments for the first and reserve teams respectively.
Finally, well done and many thanks to one of the unseen volunteers at the club, Mark Titmarsh (assistant groundsperson), who has cut and prepared the first-team pitch this season.
The visitors to Shoemakers' Lane this season have all commented on the quality of the playing surface.
