In a very tactical match the first chance came after 14 minutes when a ball into the box was met by Christopher Townsley who put Conor Kelly through but his shot came off the bar and over .Three minutes the deadlock was broken when a Kelly shot was only parried by Calum Reid in the visitors goal and GORDON DONALDSON was on hand to lob the ball over the keeper into the net . A. minute later it was 2-0 when the visiting defence was put under pressure by Greg Binnie and forced a pass back to his keeper who miss hit it into the path of ROSS NIMMO in the middle of the box and he had the simplest task to find the back of the net . Ross Nimmo put a good ball into the box on 26 minutes but it was cleared by the defence . With six minutes left of the half Conor Kelly did well to get to the bye line before finding Nimmo who in turn set up Binnie , but the later sent his shot over the bar . A corner to the home side with two minutes left was met by the head of Shaun Harrison but it went wide right .
Broxburn had an opportunity to increase their lead five minutes into the second half when Conor Kelly was brought down in the box and when he stepped up to take the penalty award Calum Reid saved and his defence got the danger cleared . Ross Nimmo made good room coming in from the right for a shot but it went over the bar . A dangerous ball into the box was cleared over the bar by Christopher Townsley . On 61 minutes Binnie made a good run into the box but his cross was cut out for a corner . Shaun Harrison had two chances from successive corners his first was deflected past the target and his second was a free header that sailed over the bar . The points were sealed on 71 minutes when Ross Nimmo played a great ball through to CONOR KELLY who went past the keeper before lobbing the ball goal wards and despite desperate defending the ball found the net . Greg Binnie had a header on 73 minutes that went safely into Reid’s arms . Heriot Watt got a consolation goal on 74 minutes when a corner into the box was cleared out right but still in the box when Michael Linton clumsily challenged the forward giving the visitors a penalty which Captain AIDAN QUINN made no mistake from the 12 yard mark . Justin Hogg had a good ball across the box cut out by Connor Wallace . With time running down Nicholas Locke turned and shot forcing a great save from Reid . Another three points in the bag see’s us keep our top spot .With three cup ties coming up only time will tell if we are top by the end off the month .Tough cup ties start next week away to Jeanfield Swifts in the South Challenge cup .
