A late goal by Craig Moore secured a draw for Cowdenbeath and denied Dumbarton victory on their own patch.
Cowden opened the scoring in the first half through James Stevenson's strike.
The Sons turned the match around after the break with Bryan Prunty scoring from close range and Scott Agnew firing home six minutes from the end.
But Moore got the break of the ball in the last minute and finished well to level matters.
Cowdenbeath and Dumbarton remain 10th and 11th, respectively, in Division One with a point separating the sides.
