10-man Vale dig in to pick up our first point of the season.
Kyle Gauld’s strike after just 63 seconds was cancelled out by Huntly’s Logan Johnstone early in the 2nd half, before Vale’s Courtney Cooper was shown a second yellow card in the 58th minute. Vale had a great chance towards the end to take all 3 points back to Princess Royal Park, but Dane Ballard’s penalty was saved by the Huntly keeper.

Attention now turns to the Scottish Cup as we prepare for our 2nd preliminary round tie against Camelon Juniors next weekend.
