Broxburn had the first chance with a good move on 9 minutes when Nico Gibson put the ball through to Conor Kelly and he cut it back to Scott Richards on the edge of the box but his shot went just over the bar . The opening goal came after 17 minutes when a good run by Nicholas Locke was passed out to Cameron Ross who’s shot was well saved but as the ball broke out right CONOR KELLY picked it up and fired home from outside the box on the right hand side deceiving all to find the back of the net . A couple of minutes later a corner into the box saw Andrew Grant out jump all but his header went just over the bar . Half way through the half a free kick into the box was spilled by the keeper but his defence cleared for a corner before any Broxburn Attacker got near it . Locke saw a free kick from the left go narrowly past the right hand post a minute later .On 36 minutes Coldstream could have equalised when Matt Corfield headed wide of the right hand post . Broxburn doubled their lead on 40 minutes when GREG BINNIE received the ball 20 yards out and sent the ball past Turnbull into the back of the net . Corfield , a minute later again headed past the post with Wallace beaten . Broxburn went up the park with the bye kick and Scott Richards gathered the ball and went right before putting it on a plate for CONOR KELLY to shoot high into the net . With two minutes left Greg McCrudden saw a shot saved by Wallace . in the last minute a free kick played into the Broxburn box was not defended and when the ball fell to KIERAN LEE he scored giving Wallace no chance and gave his side a life line back into the game .
At the start of the second half Coldstream started well and Craig Heugh saw a shot defended for a early corner . It was the visitors who added to the scoring on 49 minutes when Locke gathered the ball in the right hand side of the box and got to the bye line and fired across the six yard box where SCOTT RICHARDS was at the back post to score . Broxburn put the tie to bed on 62 minutes when Greg Binnie made a run into the box and the defender attempted to trip him but all though Binnie kept his feet the ball had run away and the referee gave the penalty and CONOR KELLY stepped up to score and complete his hat trick . Broxburn could have went further ahead on 71 minutes when Cameron Ross made a good run into the left hand side of the box but shot into the side netting with team mates free in the box maybe a better option . On 74 minutes Broxburn got their sixth when Richards sent JACK BEESLEY through and as Elliot Turnbull parried the original shot over his head Jack was first to the ball to force it into the net .With the game reaching the end Locke saw an effort go a begging . The last action of the game saw a corner into the hosts box where Andrew grant’s effort came off the bar . .
A good overall performance with the players coming in doing well . The strength of squad will be needed time and time again in the coming weeks and it was good to see them step up to the mark .
