Broxburn created the first opening after three minutes when a through ball to Alexander Miller gave the striker a chance but his effort was deflected for a corner .It was the visitors who took the lead on 5 minutes. CALUM ADAMSON made his way down the right and got the better of Ryan Baptie before firing past Donoghue to give his side the lead .On ten minutes Darren Cole and Nicholas Locke played good football to set up Miller who saw his shot saved as it was heading for the top corner . The corner came in and broke out to Darren Gribben who shot over the bar . The visitors punished the missed chances when going two up on 14 minutes when a corner was cleared out to the edge of the box and GREIG SMITH made room for himself before shooting through a crowded box into the net . Kieran Anderson made a good run down the left and his ball into the box went past the far right post .Darren Cole made a good forward run on 25 minutes and burst into the box but his shot was of defender standard as he shot over .Just after the half hour mark two golden opportunities for the hosts from corners with efforts cleared of the line on both occasion’s from Miller and Gribben . Good play down the park saw Miller set up Anderson but the effort went over the bar from the right hand side . Adamson almost got in again after beating Baptie to the ball Frazer Paterson deflected his effort for a corner . With a minute left of the half CALUM ADAMSUN got down the right to easy and fired home his second and his side’s third with ease .
Broxburn started the second half brightly as Anderson put a ball into Nicholas Locke but it was just too high for his team mate . Craig Scott had an effort after 50 minutes but it was too weak and Stuart Hall gathered easily . A minute later a long ball through for Alexander Miller but he was just offside .Adamson saw his effort for a hat trick blocked on 52 minutes . Darren Gribben put a ball into the box and was put over his own bar by Colin Wilson .Adamson robbed Scott in the box but saw his effort saved and cleared when he should have done better .Just after the hour mark Craig Purves made a superb tackle on Lee Bryce ,Tam Forsyth style , as the forward was about to pull the trigger . Frazer Paterson saw a shot come off the post and go out for a bye kick . On 71 minutes Anderson put a great ball into the back post where miller headed just wide of the right hand post . The visitors put a good corner into the six yard box but there were no forwards there and the ball went out at the other side for a bye kick . Ross Nimmo made a good run down the right hand side and saw his cut back smothered by Hall in the visitors goals .In the dying minutes of the game both Nimmo and Anderson had efforts but like all before did not find the back of the net .
