With so much at stake ,it was no surprise both sides started cagily but the hosts opened the scoring in 10 minutes when a loose ball out f defence was picked up by Nicholas Locke who ran forward and when most thought he would strike he laid the ball off to his right to CONOR KELLY just inside the box and he took a touch before firing home the opener . Two minutes later a good ball into the home defence was headed goal ward by Taylor Hendry but Connor Wallace held comfortably . A long ball through on sixteen minutes found Alexander Miller but his shot went over the bar . A minute later at the other end Taylor Hendry saw a shot blocked and cleared . End to end stuff as Donaldson then put a great ball in from the left which found Miller’s head but it went over the bar . The second goal did come a minute later when Jack Beesley’s free kick in to the box from the left sailed over everybody and found ALEXANDER MILLER who steered his header across the goal into the far side of the net . On 27 minutes Miller weaved his way into the box before shooting wide of the target . A minute later a ball into the hosts box was met by Kenny O’Brien who fired a shot towards goal the Connor Wallace had to be at his best to turn behind for a corner . Just after the half hour mark a good ball into the box found Shaun Harrison but he could not get any power or direction on his header as it went wide left of the target . With 36 minutes on the clock a free kick wide left about 30 yards out by Jordan Hopkinson went wide right of the target with Wallace having his goal covered .The game was still swinging from end to end and a great move from the home side saw Conor Kelly force a good save from Murray Jackson . The last chance of the half came when Gordon Donaldson crossed from the left but Kelly headed wide right .
In the first minute of the second half Conor Kelly made a good run down the left and his shot crashed off the corner of the bar and post .The rebound fell to Beesley who crossed to Miller who’s header was saved . Michael Barfoot shot over the bar on 48 minutes . On 53 minutes Euan Greig made room on the edge of the box but the full back shot over from 20 yards out . Craig Scott saw a shot go over the bar on the hour mark . Jordan Smith got into the box for the visitors but Wallace saved his shot . Half way through the half Miller thought he had added the third but despite a good move it was disallowed for offside . A couple of minutes later Broxburn hit the woodwork again and it was cleared for a corner . With 76 minutes gone Ross Nimmo put a great ball in to Miller who scooped the ball over the bar from eight yards . Craig Scott saw an effort deflected for a corner two minutes later .Greg Binnie sent a corner in from the left on 79 minutes that went past everybody and was cleared of the line at the back post by Barfoot . With the game petering out with four minutes left Locke set up Miller who shot over Greg Binnie headed wide of the target from a Nimmo cross . In the last embers of the game Greg Binnie was through one on one with the keeper but Murray Jackson saved well to protect his goal . A comfortable win though Tynecastle had their moments .A place in the next round away to Girvan in three weeks reward for the win and one to look forward to .
