Shortly after Town had halved the deficit Daz Clough was shown the red card for allegedly swearing at the ref, then Luke Delve added a third and the points seemed to be heading back to Seamer.
But Filey had other ideas and struck twice to earn a share of the spoils. Liam Sugden scored twice for the hosts, with Will Hunter also netting.
Seamer chief Paddy Parke said: “I am proud of how all the lads grafted together and we deserved more from the game.”
Town boss Dave Brannan added: “I think the players battled really well especially in the second half to get a point with 10 men and we could have nicked it late on.”

Edgehill pulled a goal back after the break but Jenkinson sealed the win his third two minutes from time.
Jenkinson was the man of the match for Duchess after a fine display up front.
West Pier Reserves striker Chris Weetman was yet another hat-trick hero, his goals helping the hosts to a 5-3 win against Cayton Corinthians Reserves.
Dean Andrews also netted for Pier as they built a 4-1 lead, Simon Stubbs having scored earlier for Cayton, the visitors also having a goal scrubbed out for offside early on.
