Aarran Butcher placed the ball to the left-hand bottom corner and the keeper was unable to get enough of a hold on it to stop the ball from going in the net.
It was still all to play for with 44 minutes to go.
In the 53rd minute Aarran Butcher was fouled by the Felixstowe number four (Neil Calver) but retaliated, concluding in Butcher seeing the red card and the Felixstowe player seeing yellow.
Swaffham dug in with determination to hang on to the draw and threaten more goals too. There were impressive games from Gary Setchell (capt) and Anthony Reeve in defence with Danny Rasberry and Ashley St John at the front threatening at times.
