Broxburn had the first opportunity on 2 minutes when Miller headed over from 10 yards out . Two minutes later Sean Murphy made room in the box but his shot was tipped round the right hand post by Wallace . Wallace again came to the hosts rescue on 8 minutes when Bert Miller forced a good save . Against the run of play Broxburn took the lead when a good move saw Andrew Gillen put a ball in from the right and found ALEXANDER MILLER who bulleted a header into the net on 18 minutes . Tranent hit the woodwork from a corner on 21 minutes and when it broke out to Shaun Hill his shot went wide of the target . Tranent continued to push for a equaliser forcing corner after corner but they were dealt with by the Broxburn defence .
Straight from the kick off Craig Scott tried to catch the keeper out but he managed to stop the effort . Tranent equalised on 55 minutes when a free kick out on the left went past everybody and found the back of the net from ANDREW JONES . Level terms only lasted 3 minutes when a Scott Richards in from the left found the head of GORDON DONALDSON who steered the ball home . Three minutes later Broxburn could have increased their lead when a free kick in from the right saw Alexander Miller head wide . On 64 minutes Scott Richards saw a good effort shave the cross bar as it went over . Half way through the half Tranent broke away and Bradley Barrett shot over the bar .With chances being rare for the rest of the match in windy conditions it was the visitors who were the happier taking all three points from the match against a title challenger .
