The first half took a while to get going and the first opportunity did not happen until the 13th minute when Ross Nimmo chased a ball through beat the defender and cut back to Cameron Ross who shot wide left of the goals . Two minutes later good build up play saw a good ball out right to Greg Binnie who’s good ball into the box was cut out and held by Kieran McDougal in the visitors goal . The opening goal came on eighteen minutes when SCOTT RICHARDS intercepted a pass out of defence and from twenty five yards out he fired home giving the keeper no chance . On 21 minutes Aiden Kemp made room just inside the box that Connor Wallace saved at his near post before Donaldson cleared for a corner .Just past half way of the first half Ross Nimmo saw a shot deflect for a corner and when the corner came in ,home debutant John Grant saw a header go wide left of the target . Ross Nimmo turned well on 34 minutes but his shot was deflected for a corner . Great play between Scott Richards and Cameron Ross saw the later force a great save from Kieran McDougal .
Early in the second half Ross Watters got into the box on the right and cut a ball across the six yard box but there were no takers for his good ball in .Two minutes later on 53 minutes Broxburn doubled their lead when Scott Richards fired a ball across from the right and it went straight through to GREG BINNIE six yards out and he turned the ball home . Edinburgh University got back in the game on 63 minutes when a slick move ended with AIDEN KEMP receiving the ball wide right and he cut into the box and fired home giving Wallace no chance . Right away at the other end Ross Nimmo headed a chance of the post and it rebounded across the goals before being cleared . From the corner the ball was cleared out to Gavin Grant who’s shot was deflected over from the edge of the box . Alexander Miller shot over the bar on 65 minutes . Ross Nimmo made a good strong run down the right before the defence cleared just before he entered the box . The tie was over in 74 minutes when a long ball was headed back towards his keeper by STUART MacFARLANE but his keeper had advanced off his line and it sailed into the net with Miller making sure it did . The final chance in the last minute fell to Miller who saw a looping header saved under his bar by McDougal . A good scalp from the Lowland league in what was a comfortable win .This set us up for next weeks William Hill Scottish cup tie against East Stirlingshire . We expect a tougher match and will have several of the missing squad back giving the manager a headache as the way the players available played to day .
