Broxburn started the cup tie well and force two corners in the first 4 minutes .Cameron ross made a good run down the left cut inside before the defence grouped to stop his run and clear the danger . . At the other end Connor Wallace saved well with his out stretched leg and when it broke to Harvey Swann his shot was blocked by Donaldson and then cleared by Harrison . On 27 minutes David Cox made a good run through the heart of the defence but shot wide and high . On 28 minutes Wallace saved well from Cox and another shot was blocked and cleared . A free kick into the box from the left found the head of Craig Barr but his header went wide of the target .A ball across the box eventually found Craig Scott who shot wide right from outside the box . A free kick deep in the Broxburn half was sent into the box and found Greg Binnie who was brought down in the box . ALEXANDER MILLER fired the penalty into the net sending the keeper the wrong way . to the delight of the huge crowd with 2 minutes left of the half .
The second half started with Cowdenbeath trying hard to get back in the game and when Barr sent a ball into the box there were no takers . On 51 minutes Alexander miller fired high an wide . The visitors got a boost on 62 minutes when Miller was brought down but this time the strikers penalty was well saved by on loan Hibernian keeper Maciej Dabrowski and also saved the rebound attempt . Cameron Ross made a good run through on 65 minute but his shot was saved .Substitute Ross Nimmo raced clear of the visiting defence and tried to squeeze the ball in at the right hand post past the advancing keeper from the left but the ball drifted just wide of the target . The second goal was only delayed a minute when a Cowdenbeath throw in was intercepted by Craig Scott who knocked it to Nicholas Locke who returned the favour 35 yards out on the left hand side and CRAIG SCOTT fired a volley high over the keeper into the roof off the net . With ten minutes remaining the referee booked Kris Renton for simulation in the box as Cowdenbeath tried to get into the game . The game was sealed on 82 minutes when a kick out from Dabrrowski was headed unchallenged back into the Blue Brazil half where Nicholas Locke laid the ball out wide right to CONOR KELLY who with his first touch sent the ball int the far bottom left corner of the net . An overwhelming result and what a backing from the crowd . The players certainly got the lift they needed when they saw the town had come out and supported them in great numbers . Back down to Earth fo Wednesday evening when we play host to Newtongrange Star in the league with a 7-30pm kick off .
