Broxburn set the scene for attacking the visitors as early as the 2nd minute when Jack Beasley got down the right but his ball into the box was hammered clear by the defence . Two minutes later Beasley again got down the right this time he found the Head of Dominico Gibson who knocked it down to Greg Binnie but the defence thwarted the chance and cleared the ball away from the danger area . Greg Binnie forced his way past two defenders before shooting but Martin in the host’s goal saved comfortably . It was all Broxburn and in eight minutes a good Conor Kelly cross found the head of Binnie who’s header was saved . On 18 minutes a free kick in from the left was just too much for the attacking Broxburn forwards and the ball went out for a bye kick .The goal came half way through the half when Broxburn were awarded a corner on the left .The ball came deep into the box and GREG BINNIE unmarked was able to steer the ball into the bottom left hand corner of the net .Just after the half hour mark another corner into the box was met by Binnie again but this time his header went over the bar . Dominico Gibson almost finished of a good move when his shot was saved after it took a deflection towards goal that Martin did well to follow in the visitors goals .
The second half started as the first half when Craig Scott ,on at half time for Andrew Gillen , sent a ball into the box that Gibson headed wide of the target . On 52 minutes Dominico Gibson saw a shot from 20 yards out on the left take a deflection for a corner . Kelly put a great ball in from the right and Gibson was thwarted when Martin dived at his feet inside the six yard box to grab the ball . Connor Kelly done well to get down the left but his cross come shot could have been better with team mates waiting in the middle . Binnie was unlucky on the hour mark when a near perfect ball over the top gathered speed and was just beyond the striker . The second goal did come on 67 minutes when a Beasley short corner to Nicholas Locke out on the right ,was then played into the box where Kelly forced a double save from the Dunipace keeper but it finally broke to the head to DOMINICO GIBSON who headed home . Two minutes later if the tie was not over it was now when a free kick into the box found GREG BINNIE clear to head into the net . It was four nil on 83 minutes when GREG BINNIE gathered the ball on the right and went on a run past defender’s challenge’s to get clear and slot past the luckless keeper . Cameron Ross made a good run into the box with two minutes remaining but his shot at goal was well saved . It should have been a handful in the final minute when a great ball across the six yard box was met at the back post by Jack Beasley who some how managed to turn the ball past the right hand post of the unguarded goals . Through to the next round with a home tie against Dunbar Utd or Coldstream ,who play on Tuesday evening ,on the 23rd of March . A lot of good came out of the game with players getting good game time that have been idle on our run recently and great to see Grant Gavin get on as sub with 15 minutes to go to make his season’s debut .
