Jon Lewis and debutant James Tredwell rescued Sussex on the opening day of their Championship match with Yorkshire at Arundel.
After Liam Wells (74) gave the hosts a solid start, Tim Bresnan (3-78) initiated a Sussex collapse as they slipped from 108-1 to 188-7.
But Tredwell, who joined Sussex on loan from Kent on Sunday, hit six fours in making 45 from 76 balls.
Lewis (50 not out) then helped Sussex to close on a respectable 300-9.
Earlier, Wells and Chris Nash (28) put on 48 for the first wicket and the home side did not look in any trouble in the first session as Rory Hamilton-Brown made 45.
Bresnan changed all that and took three vital wickets, including Ed Joyce for a four-ball duck.
But Sussex dug in and the last three wickets have added 112 either side of a stoppage for bad light.
BBC Sussex's Adrian Harms:
"A day of fluctuating fortunes at Arundel with honours just about even at the close of play.
"Sussex will be frustrated to have been 104-1 at lunch but 188-7 at tea.
"But the lower order showed this is a good pitch as a third batting point was achieved just before the close."
