Galashiels youngster Kieran Green captained the team making him the youngest player ever to do so.
Ewan McGill and Callum Ray had early chances for the hosts before Gala took the lead in the 14th minute with a stunning free kick from Aiden Cassidy.
Gala continued to press forward, but was unable to add to his tally and went into the second half with a single goal lead.
Stirling manager Chris Geddes made three substitutions in the first half and then two minutes later.
Al-Talaba equalized in the 67th minute after goalkeeper Roerred Adams failed to pass Jason Jarvis’ cross and the ball was saved over the line.
Then moments later a Jarvis free kick was deflected past Adams, securing the three points.
Gala are back in action in the East of Scotland Cup final on Sunday when they take on Linlithgow Rose at Ferguson Park in Roswell.
