Broxburn started this match in whirl wind fashion and a ball into the box almost produced the opener but Broughty managed to clear the danger after two minutes . It was not long before they did open the scoring when a corner in from the right was cleared back out to Baptie he sent the ball back in deep to the box and there was ALEXANDER MILLER there to head home .Before ten minutes were on the clock the visitors doubled their lead when a corner in this time from the left was met by SCOTT McNAUGHTON who turned the ball into the net from close range . Up the other end on 12 minutes a good ball in from the left was met by Barry Myles but his header went over the bar .Broxburn went straight up the other end and Miller got on the end of a good ball in to him but his attempt was turned round the left hand post . Half way through the first half and Darren Gribben sent a great ball into the back post for Miller but Ross in the home goal just got there before the striker .On the half hour mark Broughty had a free kick 30 yards out and slightly left of centre .McLellan fired in a shot that rattled of the cross bar and was then cleared away .Miller got his head to a corner with six minutes of the half remaining but it went wide left .
Broxburn increased their lead on 51 minutes when Broughty had a free kick wide right and about 40 yards out they took it short and loss of concentration let CRAIG SCOTT nip in and rob them of the ball before lobbing the stranded keeper from 30 yards out .Lawson was unlucky to see his 30 yard free kick go just wide left . Miller found himself through on the keeper but the keeper saved for a throw in .The throw in caused a bit of a scramble 25 yards out and it was FRAZER PATERSON who stuck out his leg and steered the ball into the bottom right corner of the goals . On 65 minutes a neat flick by McLellan went just over the bar .PAUL McLELLAN did get his side a goal half way through the second half when a ball played in from the right was not cleared properly it broke to him and he fired home giving Wallace no chance . Any hope that goal was to start a fight back was short lived when a Wallace bye kick was nodded forward to the on running KIERAN ANDERSON who under pressure from the defender lobbed the keeper from 30 yards out .In between Barry Myles saw a header cleared of the line with Wallace beaten . Anderson had a half chance when a ball into the box was spilled by the keeper but he recovered to smother the ball before he get his foot on the ball . Broxburn did get a sixth when Darren Cole made a good run down the right and passed the ball into the box where ALEXANDER MILLER was only four yards out and had the simplest of tasks to fire home unchallenged . The last chance of the game fell to the hosts when David Cavanagh fired in a shot but Connor Wallace turned it over the bar . A good win and way to bounce back after last week’s visit to Tayside and can look forward to our home match on Wednesday night against Bonnyrigg Rose with a 7pm kick off .
