Broxburn Athletic started on the attack and Alexander Miller saw a shot deflected for a corner in two minutes . Camelon stepped up after that and Kieran Anderson saw a wicked shot from wide left tipped over the bar by Connor Wallace to the frustration of his former team mate a minute later . Four minutes  gone and Anderson was through on goal but again Wallace came out to block the effort and the ball spun away for a throw in . Camelon were pressing and only a minute later on 5 minutes a ball into the box  saw Andrew Kay head just over the bar .Broxburn Athletic came back into it and Miller put a great ball into the box from the right but Donald Morrison headed clear for a corner on ten minutes . Gordon Donaldson got down the left and put a great ball into the box where Miller met it with his head but it sailed over the bar on thirteen minutes . Half way through the half a throw in to Miller allowed him to turn and shoot but it went wide right from the left hand side . A minute later Nicholas Locke made a good run down the right and a good ball in to Miller set up a chance but Dean Shaw came out and blocked the striker’s shot . A blow on the half hour mark saw Scott Richards limp off and replaced by Ross Nimmo . With 36 minutes on the clock a Harrison free kick into the box saw Miller send a pass out to Nimmo who’s shot was saved for a corner . The corner came into the crowded penalty area and CONNOR KELLY some how found room to turn and shoot home into the bottom left hand corner to give the visitors the lead . Two minutes later Ross Nimmo made a move down the right and his pass was blocked going into the box but it came back to him and this time he sent in a great ball which Miller sent wide right of the target . With a minute left Anderson was in on goal but was blocked and when the ball broke back to Liam McCroary he sent the ball high and wide . The last action of the half saw Connor Kelly set up Nimmo but the wee man sent his shot into the side netting .

Camelon came out the second half determined to get back in the game and on 47 minutes an Anderson free kick into the box  was headed wide by Donald Morrison . Good one touch passing on the edge of the box saw Kelly finally shoot but he did so weakly at the keeper and he gathered easily . The equaliser came on 51 minutes when Locke fouled Anderson bearing down on goal and received a booking for his effort . KIERAN ANDERSON stepped up 20yards out left of centre of the goals and fired a shot into the left hand side of the net with Wallace no chance . Alan Docherty made a good run down the left and as he cut inside he let fly with a shot that Connor Wallace turned round the far right post for a corner . Shaun Harrison put a good ball into the box on 64 minutes that found Miller but Shaw saved for a corner at the    second attempt . Going into the fourth quarter of the match an Anderson free kick was blocked and cleared . Joni Turner saw a great free kick heading to bottom left hand corner saved by Shaw . On 78 minutes Alan Docherty saw an attempt go just over the bar . Nicholas Locke tried an effort from 35 yards out but saw it sail over the bar .With both sides going for the winner a throw in set up Docherty but he shot wildly high and right . With five minutes left a Nimmo free kick into Miller saw the striker head goalward but it was deflected for a corner . The winner came in 89 minutes when Ross Nimmo saw Nicholas Locke and played a through ball into his path he got to the bye line and sent in a cross that ALEXANDER MILLER sent high into the net to seal a victory to the delighted Broxburn team mates and faithful . A big win over one of the challengers this season and a good start to the league campaign sets us up for a tough Football  Nation 1st round match on Saturday down at Gretna 2008 .
