Broxburn started well and in four minutes a good ball over the top from Beasley sent Alexander miller through but Murphy in the hosts goals was quick to react and blocked the striker’s shot to safety .Four minutes later Murphy gathered a Kieron Anderson effort at the second attempt .On ten minutes Anderson switched a ball out wide right to Ross Nimmo who’s ball into the box was met by the head of Miller but it went wide left of the goal . Calum Scott put a great free kick deep into the box from the right but none of his team mates got to it and Jack Beasley cleared the danger .Boness took the lead in Bizarre circumstance’s when a harmless ball in to the edge of the box ANDREW GILLEN tried to head it back to his keeper but knocked it past him ,Shaun got back to scoop the ball away but unfortunately it had crossed the line .On 21 minutes a ball played in from the right was met by Marc Kelly and his snap shot went wide of the right hand post . Half an hour gone and Zander Miller made room for himself but shot over from 20 yards out . On 33 minutes a ball into the box went past Murphy’s left hand post but the visitors thought they had a good claim for a penalty as Murphy flattened Gordon Donaldson as he attempted to head the ball but the referee was having none of it . Broxburn got an equaliser in spectacular style with five minutes of the half remaining .A free kick out on the right 30 yards out was hammered into the top of the net by KIERON ANDERSON .Two minutes later he had a similar attempt from the left hand side that shaved the right hand post .Craig Scott almost gave the visitors a half time lead but was off balance when the ball came to him and he shot over the bar .
Boness came out the second half more determined and in 47 minutes Callum Scott thought he had given his side the lead but was rightly chalked off for offside .Two minutes later Devon Jacobs saw his shot handled well by Sean Donoghue .A further two minutes and Callum Scott from the right of the box shot just over the bar . A minute later on 52 minutes after some good one touch play Michael Gemmell shot wide left . After the hour mark and Gemmell saw a shot easily saved by Donoghue . Broxburn started getting back into the game and on 67 minutes Anderson put a ball through to Miller but the striker saw his shot blocked by Murphy .The same two created another chance two minutes later but Murphy again saved . Boness took the lead on 75 minutes a way ward pass from Anderson went out for a throw in on the left hand side . Boness took the throw in and Jacobs got down the line and across the bye line before cutting it back to FRASER KEAST who made no mistake from 5 yards out .They almost increased their lead when a free kick was met by Stuart Hunter who’ attempt was cleared off the line . With time running out Miller was through with the keeper to beat but Murphy came out and blocked his shot and saved .A deserved equaliser came in the ninetieth minute when Kieron Anderson gathered the ball in his own half and ran past The visiting players like they were statues before sliding the ball into the path of ALEXANDER MILLER in the right hand side of the box and this time he made no mistake .
