Shortly after a Michael Rod- gers bullet header increased Lundavra’s lead before Bradley Flannigan rose highest to meet a corner kick to give Lundavra a 3- 0 half-time lead.
An early penalty converted by Andy Cunningham pulled Mallaig back into the tie.
The momentum was now with them and further goals from Ross Douglas and Neil Cameron made it 3-3 with 20 minutes to go.
