A strong wind was going to make things difficult for both sides .It was Broxburn who created the first chance when Kieran Anderson put a ball into the back of the box from the right and Alexander Miller sent a looping header just over the bar . Four minutes later Miller forced a great save from Paterson . Anderson crashed a free kick off the post on fourteen minutes . Almost 20 minutes on the clock and Christopher Gay saw a shot blocked from the home defence and cleared away to safety . A couple of minutes later the visitors had a couple of chances but failed to find the net . Craig Scott saw an effort saved just before half time .
Christopher Townsley replaced the sick Grant Gavin at half time . On 53 minutes Scott Richards saw an effort headed over his own bar by Patridge .At the other end a minute later Mathew Gay was through on goals but Dawid Paterek ,who was in goals for the hosts due to their two signed goalkeepers being away , came out and blocked his attempt and Craig Purves cleared the loose ball from the danger area . Kennoway had the strong wind at their back’s and two minutes later Paterek saved a long range effort from Liam Craig .A minute later the visitors took the lead when a long throw into the box was only cleared out to the edge of the box where Dylan Muir was unmarked and he fired home into the bottom corner through a crowded box . Half way through the second half and Jack Beasley set up Alexander Miller who some how blasted well over from six yards out with only the keeper to beat . Andrew Gillen saw his shot blocked on the line after 75 minutes . Broxburn got on level terms three minutes later when Kieran Anderson fired a spectacular free kick home from the left hand touch line into the top right hand corner .Five minutes later and the hosts were in front Alexander Miller was sent through on goal and with the keeper his only defence he fired home past him . This lead was short lived as the visitors hit back right away . A throw into the box from the left went over everyone and fell slightly behind Mathew gay who improvised by back healing the ball into the net from six yards catching everybody out . MIller , Townsley and Beasley all had chances in the dying embers of the match but could not find the net and the points were shared .
