It was a tense and bruising match and both teams created numerous chances with newly acquired Aces keeper, Washington Arubi making some spectacular saves.
Arubi's work permit only came through on Friday and the Zimbabwean would probably have been named man-of-match for some remarkable saves.
Aces did start well playing into a howling wind and did hit the crossbar midway through the 1st half. As the heavens opened with lightning in the vicinity, Vaal grew in confidence and ended the match in the ascendancy.
The result sees Aces still in the hunt but have now dropped to 6th in the keenly contested Gauteng stream of the ABC Motsepe league.
