Bonnyrigg took the lead in two minutes when a long bouncing ball was contested for by Darren Cole and WAYNE McINTOSH the Rose player getting the better of the defender and was in on goal and made no mistake from 14 yards out .A minute later broxburn should have been level when Nicholas Locke disposed the defender of the ball 30 yards out and was through one on one with the keeper who pulled of a great save to deny the captain .On 12 minutes Sean Jamieson got his toe to the ball and knock it past the keeper but Craig Purves got back and cleared the ball up the park and away from danger . Zander Miller put a great ball across the hosts box but unfortunately it was just beyond the attacking Nimmo at the back post .Alexander Miller had a double chance thwarted by the keeper on 20 minutes .half way through the half a free kick into the visitors box saw Ruaridah Donaldson with a free header but he headed well over the bar .McIntosh had a couple of opportunities round the half hour mark .Broxburn immediately punished these misses when Alexander Miller was through on goal inside the box when Michael Andrews in the hosts goals came out and brought him down .What happened next baffled most in the crowd as the referee showed a straight red card to the keeper but admitted due to the new rule that if a genuine attempt is made to win the ball it is still a penalty but the offender is shown a yellow not a red .Once all the confusion had settled down CRAIG PURVES kept his cool to score from the spot kick .
Bonnyrigg took the lead on the hour mark when a ball into the middle of the visitors defence broke out right to WAYNE McINTOSH who gave Wallace no chance .A minute later Andrew Kidd saw a free kick go just wide from 30 yards .Nicholas Locke created a chance on his own when getting the ball on the right cutting inside and he saw his shot well saved . Chances went a begging for both sides and Darren Cole made a fantastic last gasp tackle when McIntosh looked certain to get his hat trick .Wallace had a great save from McGachie .Kidd put a great ball into the back post for McGachie but the striker shot over . Bonnyrigg got a third as the visitors got a corner in the last minute and sent everybody into the box including the keeper when the corner broke down the ball was put out to LEWIS TURNER on the half way line and he only had to hit the target of the unguarded goal to seal victory with the last kick of the ball .
