Broxburn had a chance early on when Ross Nimmo played a ball into Alexander Miller but the striker was offside and the keeper had saved easily anyway . Lochee should have taken the lead in nine minutes when Logan Davie bore down on goal with only Shaun Donoghue to beat the young keeper saved with his legs turning the ball or a corner .Lochee were dictating the play without penetrating the strong home defence . All their play meant nothing when Broxburn took the lead on 17 minutes when Ross Nimmo played a good ball to ALEXANDER MILLER who turned and shot from the right hand side inside the box into the left hand bottom corner in of the far post .Half way through the half and Kieran Anderson lobbed the defence for Miller to run on to but was adjudged to have been offside . A minute later Miller set up his strike partner Alexander Murray who’s shot went just over . On 39 minutes it was all most 2-0 when Anderson played Miller through and from a tight right hand angle he put it past the advancing Fotheringham in the Lochee goals but Millar got back to clear off the line . The second goal did come on 40 minutes when Ross Nimmo was fouled 25 yards out wide right and Kieran Anderson floated a great free kick into the box for NICHOLAS LOCKE to send his glancing header into the far left hand corner .
Lochee had an opportunity two minutes into the second half when they received a free kick 20 yards out and central to the goals but Grant Lawson fired the kick into the defensive wall and the danger was cleared . On 54 minutes Donoghue done well to smother the ball with Connor Brise bearing down on goal . A minute later Alexander Miller went on a run down the right cut inside and his shot was saved at the second attempt by Fotheringham . Logan Davie was unlucky not to get onto a ball played over the top of the home defence but it was just to hard and Donoghue gathered the ball easily . A minute later Broxburn trebled their lead with Locke doing well down the left then cutting the ball across to the on running ALEXANDER MILLER who could not miss from six yards out in front of goal .The captain then sent Anderson away clear down the left but his shot was saved . Lochee mounted an attack on 70 minutes which Gordon Donaldson defused with ease and cleared the danger . Anderson saw an effort saved again on 73 minutes . Substitute Reece Ritchie thought he had scored but Donoghue managed to tip the ball over the bar at full stretch . With eleven minutes left Alexander Murray done well to get past the defence but under pressure his shot found the side net . A minute later Ritchie turned and shot at the other end but his shot shaved the left hand post . With time running down Anderson ran through the defence before setting up Miller who shot over .One last chance in the last minute when Locke played through to Anderson but he saw his effort saved .
