Berwick and 10-man Elgin drew a blank in their opening Irn-Bru Third Division tussle.
Elgin will be the more pleased with a point from the goalless stalemate, having had midfielder Daniel Moore sent off after 23 minutes for a professional foul on Berwick's Chris Townsley.
Kevin McDonald's free-kick created a good close-range chance for Berwick's Fraser McLaren, but he sent his right-footed shot flashing past the left-hand upright.
Elgin were left trying their luck from distance, but both Brian Cameron and Craig Gunn failed to hit the target with efforts from outside the penalty area.
Berwick pressed for the breakthrough as the match wore on, but Fraser McLaren was denied by a fine save from John Gibson, while the impressive McDonald twice saw free-kicks flash narrowly wide.
