Broxburn started the game well enough and created chances .In the second minute Alexander Murray played a one two with Alexander Miller with the latter’s shot being gathered at the second attempt by the keeper . .Penicuik had a short  corner in six minutes and after a one two the ball was played in to the back of the box where Andrew Forbes headed wide of the right hand post . On the quarter hour mark Ross Nimmo put a great ball into Miller who’s header went wide but was adjudged to have been offside . A minute later Kyle Sampson found time to turn and shoot but it went over the bar . Miller turned the ball back to Anderson 20 yards out but the shot was weak and the keeper saved easily .Approaching half way through the half Miller put the ball out to Nimmo on the right his ball across the box was just beyond Murray coming in at the back post . A minute later a ball played into the back post found John MacDonald who shot into the side netting . Poor distribution by Wallace almost let the visitors in but the defence rallied and cleared the danger .The opening goal did come a minute later though when a ball played over the home defence found LUMBERT KATALEZA who fired home from inside the six yard box . From the restart Nimmo went down the right before Baptie brought him down earning a yellow card . Anderson’s free kick into the box was good enough but not takers .Just past the half hour mark good play with Anderson to Nimmo then found Miller who shot weakly wide right . \\\\\anderson played a good cross field pass to Nimmo who in turn played a good ball into the box to Murray but before Murray could control the defence stepped in to clear On 34 minutes a good ball in almost caught wallaace out and he had to tip over for a corner . Penicuik doubled their lead two minutes later when a ball into the box was cleared out and it found JOHN MacDONALD 25 yards out who fired a rocket into the top left hand corner . Penicuik almost made it three with five minutes of the half remaining when Ewan Herriot misjudged  an attempt to clear the ball it found Arran Patton who laid it off to Kyle Sampson who made room but shot wide right .

The second half started quietly and the first opportunity came on 56 minutes when Murray saw a shot spilled for a corner and from the corner Miller shot over the bar . Penicuik had an other chance when a ball was played into the box but was cleared for a corner .The corner came in but was cleared out the box it was then fired goal ward by MacDonald but Wallace punched the ball clear it only went as far as KYLE SAMPSON who fired home through a crowded box into the net . Two minutes later Wallace punched clear again and MacDonald tried an ambitious overhead kick that went wide left .Broxburn got a goal back with quarter of the game remaining when Murray put ALEXANDER MILLER though on goals but despite the attendance of defenders and keeper he squeezed the ball home to give his side a life line .The visitors were reduced to ten men when Ryan Baptie received a second yellow card For yet another foul on Nimmo . A minute later Gordon Donaldson was looking for a penalty but was booked for simulation . Penicuik went further ahead on 67 minutes when Nicholas Locke was robbed of the ball half way inside his own half and a one two later KYLE SAMPSON  was able to turn and fire past Wallace . Broxburn still tried to get back into the game and a good ball into the box by Anderson but it was headed clear of the danger area . Murray saw an effort saved on 82 minutes .Two late goals turned this into a more than convincing result  The fifth came after the home defence was carved open and despite the  efforts of the defence on the line   DARREL YOUNG scrambled the ball over the line .With the last kick of the ball they made it six when a ball over the top found substitute SAMUEL JONES get beyond the defence to beat Wallace from 12 yards out . Not a good day with a very depleted squad hopefully injuries and sickness clears up before next Saturdays match at Linlithgow Rose
