Jed got their BAL Division A campaign off to a disappointing start, losing narrowly to Stow last Saturday.
The visitors took the lead somewhat fortuitously when a weak Crawford shot took a wicked bobble in front of Jed goalkeeper Jack and looped into the net. Stow increased their lead from the spot shortly after as Jed defender Melrose fouled in the box.
Jed put up a better second half showing and got back into the game, Hunter slotting home a penalty after Swailes was fouled.
Jed striker Wood hit the bar as Jed pushed for an equaliser, but the visitors held on.
