The contest was an open one right from the off with the most heart-warming moment of the day unquestionably Dean Bowditch's goal on his comeback from long-term injury.
The Dons regained the lead after 21 minutes when Weale made a great save from Dean Lewington's header, only for Long to squeeze in the rebound.
Bowditch, four minutes into his first appearance of the season, then bent in a superb shot into the far corner before Joe Jacobson's well-taken goal with four minutes remaining gave the Shrews late hope.
