In perfect conditions for football Camelon kicked off and after three minutes had the ball in the box but Gordon Donaldson headed clear .Three minutes later Cameron Ross got down the left before sending a good ball across the box but the defence cleared  the danger .The closest to a goal came after 20 minutes when Nicholas Locke fired in a shot from 25 yards but saw it crash off the cross bar and break to Beesley who’s pass into the box was met by Scott who’s effort was saved .Half way through the half a good run down the left by Miller finished with a good ball across the six yard box where Beesley cut it back again but this time Brian Kinnear cut it out and gathered . Ryan Kane had an effort blocked and cleared for the hosts on 36 minutes .Two minutes later Ryan Lochie put a good ball into the box and Allan Docherty flashed his header wide left of the target . Nicholas Locke fired a shot just wide right of the goal on 42 minutes .

The second half exploded into life a minute in when Camelon carved open the entire visiting side right down the middle before JORDAN HERRON fired home when clear in the box under the advancing Wallace .  Docherty hade a good effort go just wide on 55 minutes when coming in from the left shooting wide right . On the hour mark Craig Scott fired wide left from the right hand side . Three minutes later Docherty was thwarted by Purves at the near post at the expense of a corner . Cameron Ross tried an effort from 20 yards that was saved . Connor Wallace done well to save from Alan Sneddon turning the effort past the right hand post . Herron saw his ball into the box cleared by the visiting defence . Broxburn were on level terms half way through the second half when a good one two between Miller and Beesley saw the ball into the box met by the head of NICHOLAS LOCKE and was delighted to see the ball squirm through Brian Kinnear’s hands into the net . Level terms did not last long when a minute later a ball into the edge of the six yard box saw a melee of touches before DAVID MORRISON poked the ball home .  Jack Beesley shot wide two minutes later as the visitors tried to get back on level terms . With fourteen minutes remaining Cameron Ross set up Craig Scott who’s rocket stung the keeper’s fingers as he tipped it over the bar .  A minute later Ross again was the provider this time Miller headed over the bar . Broxburn were really pressing now and Donaldson set up Ross out on the left but his shot was saved . The pressure paid off on 83 when they were awarded a free kick just inside the Camelon half Michael Linton slid the ball to the unmarked CRAIG SCOTT forty yards out who looked up and fired a rocket into the roof of the net  . In the dying embers of the game both sides had chances . Donaldson saw a shot turned for a corner .The corner came in and Miller headed just over the bar with the keeper beaten . At the other end Sneddon headed just wide right and in injury time Tiwi Daramola fired in a shot that Connor Wallace done well to parrie clear . That was the end of the chances and probably on reflection a fair scoreline and result , all though both sides may have a claim for the three points . We now regroup and get prepared for our William Hill Scottish cup match at home to Tynecastle next Saturday with a 3-00pm kick off .
