Broxburn showed their intent in the first minute when Nicholas Locke and Ross Nimmo played a neat one two before setting up Alexander Miller on the right hand side with the striker pulling his shot wide of the left hand post after a minute on the clock . Broxburn had a let off five minutes later when a header bounced high over the advancing Connor Wallace in goals and headed goalward but the big keeper managed to get back and scoop the ball off the line with Camelon claiming it had crossed the line but the assistant was well placed to judge .Miller dispossessed Morrison 40 yards out in the middle of the park he played it to Locke who gave him it back and the later saw his shot crash off the woodwork .Camelon could have taken the lead on 14 minutes when a corner to the back post found Stuart Bell who could not direct his header goalward and it went bye for a goal kick . Half way through the half Miller got on the end of a free kick but saw his header go go bye .Locke put a great ball into the box on 27 minutes with two defenders eventually dealing with the danger .Half an hour gone and Anderson sent Nimmo free down the right but David Kane in the visitors goal was equal to the cross and cut out the danger Andrew Kay was booked for disputing an offside call which would prove costly later in the game .Alan Sneddon made a chance out of nothing as he battled his way past two defenders but was thwarted by Wallace who had come out and blocked the striker in his stride and gathered the ball at the second attempt .With five minutes remaining Miller had a strong shout for a penalty dismissed by the referee and Broxburns strikers had two shots blocked there after as they pushed their advantage .In the last minute of the half loan signing from Peterhead showed he can strike a ball from a free kick but on this occasion it went past the near post into the side netting .
Broxburn took the lead after 52 minutes when Locke beat the offside to run free down the left and cross into the box where Kane spilled the ball and CRAIG SCOTT was on hand to fire home .Scott tried his luck from 30 yards out but Kane saved well at his near right hand post .The second goal came in spectacular fashion when the hosts were awarded a free kick 35 yards out wide on the left KIERON ANDERSON rifled a unstoppable strike into the top corner on 61minutes .Broxburn sealed the win on 75 minutes when Locke got free down the left and crossed to ALEXANDER MILLER who scored in of the right hand post .It was seven minutes later and Broxburn were running riot and Anderson put a great cross ball to Miller who was through on goal and scored in off STUART BELL who was accredited with the goal .with 6 minutes remaining Andrew Kay saw red with a second yellow for a foul on the half way line . ALEXANDER MILLER completed the scoring with a superb move of one touch passes with Locke and Miller combining before the striker got into the box and scored
