Strathspey and Huntly shared the spoils in a scrappy affair at Seafield Park.
With both teams at the wrong end of the league table, plus a very windy day, they struggled to get the ball down and play passes and it was a game of very few chances.
The game was only 15 minutes old and the ball had already been retrieved from the nearby golf course 5 times!
Thistle had most of the ball early on without creating anything and with 28 mins gone Murray McCulloch made them suffer. He opened the scoring with a smart right foot shot from a right wing cross, which was Huntly's 1st shot at goal.
Huntly’s trialist centre back was having a fine game, nullifying the Jags attacks with ease and it stayed 1-0 at the break.
At half time Huntly took their trialist forward off and put on Adam McNamee, who went up front with David Booth and they started to cause Thistle some problems with their fine link play.
However, after 62 mins Scott Hume equalised for the home side when he shot home a loose ball after a scramble in the Huntly box.
It looked as if the Jags might take the three points when with five minutes left a beautiful left wing cross from Matt Murphy was missed by the keeper, but to his relief Alex Thoirs was there to clear off the line and ensure the points were shared in the basement battle.
