Broxburn started very well and took control of the game and after four minutes Alexander Miller had a chance but saw his attempt saved at the near post .Two minutes later Ross Nimmo found him self thirty yards out in space and he shot just wide right of the post .The hosts did take the lead on 14 minutes when a ball over the top of the defence saw Harwood playing the on running ALEXANDER MILLER who ran in on goal and fired into the bottom left hand corner from the right hand side of the box . Broxburn doubled there lead when a ball played into the edge of the visiting box Roche tried to clear the ball down the park but ROSS NIMMO pressed and put the defender under pressure and won the ball before firing home an unstoppable shot past the unprotected Cormack .Half way through the half Jamie McCabe tried his luck from 25 yards out and central from a free kick but saw his attempt at goal go just over the bar .Anderson saw an effort go over the bar after good play down the left . With five minutes left of the half Kieron Anderson floated in a header and it was met by Miller who’s header was saved over the bar from point blank range .The last chance of the half fell to Miller after Darren Cole ran down the left and put a ball into the box Miller had time to trap and turn but his shot went just over the bar from 12 yards .
At the start of the second half Darren Downie had a chance but was disappointed at shooting high and wide left of the goal . Craig Scott and Grant Gavin combined with the later shooting just wide on 55 minutes . On the hour mark Carnoustie could have got back in the game when a corner came in it fell to Ryan Roche but he fired wildly over .Five minutes after that chance the visitors were punished with a double whammy when Ross Nimmo fired in a cross into the box it almost deceived the keeper and he looked lively to tip it round hid post .From the corner by Anderson the ball found a crowded six yard box and CRAIG PURVES got the credit for forcing the ball home to seal the three points .On 76 minutes Downie and Nimmo combined and saw Cormack pull off a fine save . With ten minutes left how Carnoustie did not get the ball over the line when played into the box Sam Simpson shot and as it was saved he tried again but could not get contact on the ball properly and a combination of defenders cleared the danger .The last chance fell to the visitors in the last minute when a corner played in was headed by Jamie McCabe and it came off the corner of cross bar and upright and then cleared out the danger area .Three comfortable points and a good finish to the year .
