A last minute goal rescued a point for the visitors that their second half showing barely deserved .Darren Gribben had a free kick after two minutes but shot into the wall and the chance was gone .Penicuik opened the scoring after 4 minutes when Ross Montgomery was sent free down the left and his perfect ball into the box was met by the unmarked STEPHEN SCOTT who made no mistake in front of goals .Alexander Miller had an effort go over the bar on nine minutes .On fifteen minutes Connar Easton beat Ross Nimmo to the ball into the box by Richards and cleared the chance . Half an hour into the game and Nimmo and Locke set up Scott Richards but Easton saved his attempt .Three minutes later Penicuik doubled their lead .A free kick from the left 40 yards out into the box was headed back across the box and there unmarked again was STEPHEN SCOTT to hammer home his second .Two minutes later Nimmo was set up by Gribben but his shot was just wide of the target . Then Captain Locke had a turn and shot saved two minutes later Broxburn got back in the game in spectacular fashion .Nicholas Locke won the ball in midfield and tried a shot fro 35 yards out on the left it broke of a defender to ROSS NIMMO 25 yards out on the left and he fired a unstoppable shot into the top left hand corner .A minute later Miller saw his shot deflected over the bar for a corner .
Broxburn came out the second half in determined fashion and Nimmo put a ball into the box for Gribben who headed back across goals to ALEXANDER MILLER who showed great skill to get the ball under control and fire home the equaliser . On the hour mark Penicuik almost were gifted the lead when Darren Cole misjudged his back header but thankfully for the defender it went past the post . The hosts took the lead five minutes later when Gribben sent a great ball through to Locke who was fouled as he past out left to SCOTT RICHARDS but good advantage was shown by the referee Peter Stuart and Scott shot into the bottom right hand corner sending the keeper the wrong way .Darren Gribben saw his delicate shot from 30 yards out come back of the bar with Easton beaten .Penicuik’s equaliser came in the last minute when a corner kick into the back of the six yard box by Ryan Gay was met unchallenged by DARRELL YOUNG who headed home . One last opportunity in the dying minutes came from Nichlas Locke who saw his goalbound shot from a free kick saved brilliantly by Connar Easton ..Overall a draw fair result all though both camps may have cause to be disappointed as the game was a game of two half’s .
