From the off Broxburn created a chance with Locke passing to Nimmo in the box but was just to far in front of his team mate with his pass . On four minutes a free kick into the visitors box was headed goal ward by the defence lucky for him it was straight at Darren Dolan who held it firm . Alexander Miller was set up by Kieron Anderson on ten minutes allowing the striker to turn the defender and shoot but Dolan was equal to it and the shot was saved . The opening goal came in 11 minutes and what a goal it was A corner in to the box from the right was headed clear and it landed at KIERON ANDERSON’s feet he stepped outside the defenders into the right hand side of the box before firing into the top left hand corner a goal of sheer beauty . On 16 minutes Alexander miller was heading to the bye line chasing the ball when Stewart Houston took him out of play the referee awarded a free kick but to every ones astonishment no card was shown . A couple of minutes later a corner into the hosts box was headed clear but it fell to Brian Morgan who shot went well over . Half way through the half a long ball caught everybody out and William Wells should have done better but his header went straight into the arms of Wallace . The equaliser came on the half hour mark when Morgan missed a glaring header in front of goals the ball was cleared then put back into the box where CONOR KELLY shot home .

The second half started with Sauchie on the front foot and Chris Townsley did well to block a Conor Kelly effort on 47 minutes .Sauchie’s Morgan turned and shot over on 51 minutes and were on top at this time . It was no surprise that they took the lead two minutes later all though it was some what gifted to them when a ball into the box caused confusion between Townsley and Wallace and hesitancy let BRIAN MORGAN to nip in between them and fire home . Two minutes later a great ball from Locke to Miller wide right saw the striker cut inside and firing away a shot that was turned away fro a corner .When the corner came into the box Miller headed over   the bar .With 58 minutes gone good work down the right hand side ended with Andrew Gillen putting a disappointing ball into the box that went out for a bye kick . Broxburn were trying hard to match their opponents and Locke saw an effort volleyed over the bar from 25 yards out . Broxburn all most capitalised on 66 minutes when Terry Hewitt  miss judged a long ball but recovered well with Murray and Miller ready to pounce as he cleared for a throw in .A minute later a good corner into the box was met by Donaldson but he some how scooped it over from five yards out . Sauchie were dangerous with their ball’s into the box and on 69 minutes he saved well before having to react to save again from Kelly . The home side got back on level terms with a goal set up by Scott sent ALEXANDER MILLER through on goal and he made no mistake beating the keeper from 16 yards out .  . Level terms only lasted 4 minutes when a ball through to Morgan saw the captain fire for goals but Wallace saved at the expense of a corner .The corner came into the middle of the box six yards out and STUART BELL headed home unchallenged to put his side in front again . Broxburn tried hard to get back on level terms and Craig Scott fired in a shot that was well saved . A minute later  they got a break similar to Sauchie second goal when a long ball through the middle bounced just outside the box it went over the advancing keeper and ALEXANDER MILLER ran through under pressure to score . Two minutes later on 80 minutes a throw in into the box was knocked out to far side and from inside the right hand side of the box ANTHONY McTAGGART fired into the bottom right hand corner . With time running out Nicholas Locke fired over from25 yards out . .Going into time added on another fire cracker from KIRERON ANDERSON a ball  played into the box from the left hand side broke to the hot shot on the left hand corner of the box and he fired another unstoppable shot passed the helpless keeper . .Anderson could have had a hat trick and a dramatic winner when a move broke down at one end Broxburn  counter attacked well and Anderson had options to pass to either pass to Miller or Murray or shoot himself he chose the later and his effort went wide . Still unbeaten at home a positive to take out f this game with not one of our best performances of the season  is a plus and the tow  worldies from Kieron were worth being there for to see . Next week away to Lochee United (weather permitting if the forecasts are to believed ) and a bus will be leaving from the Albyn Park at 11-45pm  any one requiring a seat on the bus contact the committee asap. There is construction work going on around the Lochee ground at the school and their car park is now closed so parking will be very limited .
