Paul Heffernan levelled for Wednesday as the Owls drew with Darlington 1-1 in a pre-season friendly clash at the Northern Echo Arena tonight.
The former Doncaster Rovers man came on as a substitute just after the hour mark and promptly made his mark with the leveller just two minutes later.
It came after Paul Arnison put the hosts ahead from the penalty spot early in the second half.
The torrential downpour in Darlington prior to the match didn't help conditions for either side.
But it was Wednesday, sporting their new black and yellow away kit, that got off to the better start, testing Darlo stopper Sam Russell in the early exchanges.
Owls boss Alan Irvine made a number of changes to the side that lost 2-1 at Grimsby Town at the weekend.
Marcus Tudgay and Neil Mellor were the preferred strike pairing this time, with new arrival Clinton Morrison not yet ready for a start, according to the Wednesday gaffer.
Darren Purse also returned to the back four while Gary Teale and Darren Potter both started in midfield.
The goal action didn't start until after the restart when Darlington won a penalty following a foul by Lewis Buxton on Curtis Main - Arnison duly stepping up to fire home the spot-kick.
Both sides made numerous changes in the second half and it was one of Wednesday's subs, Heffernan, who levelled for the visitors.
Introduced on 61 minutes, the striker wasted no time in making his mark as he capitalised on a mistake at the back to drill a low shot into the back of the net.
There wasn't much in the way of goalmouth action before the end of the match but the workout will no doubt have been another pleasing one for Irvine as the new npower League One season edges ever closer.
Wednesday: Jameson, Buxton, Purse, Beevers (Hinds 78), Jones (Otsemobor 46), Teale (Boden 78), Potter (Miller 66), Palmer (O'Connor 66), Sedgwick (Moke 66), Tudgay (Heffernan 61), Mellor (Johnson 61). Unused substitute: O'Donnell
