Stags led through two Lindon Meikle strikes but SSAFA levelled the game before half-time with two quick-fire goals.
Jake Green put Stags back in front in the second half and the men in amber & blue should have wrapped up the contest comfortably but for a wasteful Simon Murphy, who missed a number of gilt-edged chances.
