Broxburn beat the six goals scored last week in beating The newly promoted champions of the Premier league Jeanfield Swifts 7-3 . Broxburn showed their intent after three minutes when Nicholas locke had a shot saved and as the ball looked to be going in it was cleared off the line by the recovering defender .A minute later a good ball into the box to Scott Richards saw the youngster blast over the bar .On eight minutes Richards sent Ross Nimmo through on goal but the striker’s shot went wide of the far post with Broxburn claiming a deflection which the referee and linesman disagreed on .The opener came on fourteen minutes when a corner was cleared out the box it fell to ROSS NIMMO who steadied himself and fired home through the crowded box to sore . A second followed three minutes later when good play down the right saw Richards pass into the path of NICHOLAS LOCKE who took two steps and fired into the bottom right hand corner .Just before the half hour mark Locke was fouled by the keeper in the box and KIERON ANDERSON scored from the awarded spot kick . With ten minutes of the half remaining Locke made a great run into the box and cut the ball across the six yard box to ALEXANDER MILLER who made no mistake from four yards out .On the stroke of half time an Anderson shot shaved the cross bar .
Jeanfield gave themselves hope two minutes after the restart when DANIEL KELLY shot from twenty yards out and it took a wicked deflection past the helpless Wallace . Four minutes later the four goal difference was restored when Richards was brought down two yards outside the box and central .NICHOLAS LOCKE stepped up and repeated his free kick from last week firing home a shot that left the keeper standing and helpless .This made the visitors make all their changes bringing on three substitutes .It was to no avail as Broxburn increased their lead when a great cross field through ball to Ross Nimmo saw the striker pushed from behind as he got in the box and KIERON ANDERSON scored his second penalty of the day inoff the left hand post . On 75 minutes Nimmo got another great through ball this time from Craig Scott and as the forward cut into the box he saw his shot go just over the bar .Three minutes later the visitors got another one back after Connor Wallace made a good save from Lewis Baker the ball broke to the edge of the box and player manager John Anderson who was fouled by Grant Gavin .Substitute ANTHONY HOLT scored from the spot .Jeanfield were on top as the hosts took their foot of the pedal and they got a third when a Stevie McManus free kick was saved the first to react was JOHN ANDERSON who scored easily . Jeanfield piled on the pressure as Broxburn tried to pick the game back up .With time running out Connor Wallace in the hosts goals had to be at his best with two fantastic saves to keep the visitors at bay .Broxburn then went up the other end in injury time and SCOTT McNaughton scored from a ball into the box after a good move by Nimmo and Alexander Miller .
Three penalties , ten goals and quality football on show what great value for the entry fee bring on more in the coming weeks .
