Penicuick Kicked of in glorious sunshine but into a strong west to east wind .Cameron Ross made a good early run but was blocked on edge of the box and the visitors cleared the danger . On 5 minutes Shaun Harrison sent a free kick into the box from the left but his ball in eluded everybody and went by the right hand post for a bye kick .Ten minutes into the game and Paul Tansey sent a cross over but was too strong for everybody and it cleared the danger area .
Good pressure from the home side saw Cammie Ross effort deflect for a corner on 15 minutes . The corner in was blocked and then fell to Ross Hutchieson who’s goal bound effort was headed clear and over the bar by Ryan Baptie .Penicuik saw two shots blocked on 18 minutes before Aaron Somerville fired a shot wide left from 18 yards . Straight up the other end a free kick 30 yards out from Cammie Ross saw Robert Watt make a excellent save pushing the ball round his post for a corner . Cammie saw an effort after a good run go wildly over the bar .
A minute later the deadlock was broke with a long ball over the home defence saw PAUL TANSEY clear to beat Connor Wallace in the home goal to put the visitors in front .
Penicuik had the first effort in the second half when Tansey saw his shot gathered by Wallace . Aaron Somerville made space but shot wide and high on 51 minutes . Tansey made a good run down the left but was to strong with his cross and it went out for a throw in . Great play down the right saw a great ball into Greg Binnie six yards out but his effort went straight at the keeper .
Broxburn Ath levelled things on 57 minutes when CAMERON ROSS gathered the ball down the left before sending a cross come shot into the box that found the far top right hand corner of the net .
Cameron Dawson tried to catch Wallace out with a free kick from just inside the Broxburn half but Wallace gathered easily . With the game nearing the end the action in the last 15 minutes produced more talking points . Great play again saw a final shot from Joe Tait go just wide left . The visitors took the lead on 83 minutes when a corner into the six yard box was blocked twice before CAMERON DAWSON forced the ball over the line . With Broxburn pushing for an equaliser a long ball over the top saw AIDEN WELSH clear in a suspiciously offside position free to run round Wallace unchallenged to seal the points with the home defence stunned there was no flag from the near side assistant .
Penicuik found time for a fourth in the last embers of the game with LUMBER KATELEZA scoring .
Disappointing the game ended this way as it was a tight close affair that no team deserved to lose the score line that it finished . We will regroup and go to Dunbar on Tuesday evening to start and pick up points .
