Falkirk 1-1 Dumbarton

Myles Hippolyte's penalty secured Falkirk their first Championship point of the season as Dumbarton drew for the second game running.

The Sons took the lead when Alistair Roy latched on to David Wilson's pass and fired into the bottom right corner.

Nathan Austin was felled in the Dumbarton area by Mark Stewart and Hippolyte converted from 12 yards.

Dougie Hill's header hit the Bairns' crossbar and Hippolyte's late shot was turned on to the post by Gallacher.
