Dunbar started the brighter and in five minutes had the ball in the net but the assistant had long flagged for an offside . Cameron Ross made a great run down the left on 13 minutes but was ruthlessly brought down and had to be replaced by Connor Kelly . Twenty minutes in and Scott Richards set up Kelly who’s shot was saved . A minute later Kelly was through In the box on the right hand side but pushed his shot  wide of the left hand post .Liam Pedan lined up a free kick on 35 minutes on the right hand side from 30 yards out but sent it just over the bar . The opening goal came three minutes later when Dunbar had a throw in in line with the 18 yard box Donaldson tried to head the ball away but glanced it into the path of STEVEN TAIT who made no mistake from 8 yards out to give the home side the lead . A flash point just before the half time whistle saw Christopher Gray being ordered off for the home side .

Broxburn came out the traps the second half and in 48 minutes Richards sent a ball out wide to Andrew Gillen who saw his ball into the box was cut out .Craig Scott saw his shot in 53 minutes sail over the bar . The equaliser came on 66 minutes when a long ball sent ALEXANDER MILLER run through and under pressure volleyed the ball home from the edge of the box . Broxburn piled on the pressure and the second goal came when Craig Scott floated a ball to the back post from the right where Miller headed back across the goal mouth and CONNOR KELL knocked the ball home on 73 minutes  . A free kick into Miller saw the strikers attempt saved . The game was over when on 80 minutes , with Miller again at the back post squared to CONNOR KELLY who scored from close in . Dunbar had a let off on 85 minutes when a poor pass back to the keeper was pressed by Greg Binnie  and the Liam McCathie in the home goal blasted the ball off him but lucky for him fell back into his own arms . In the last minute Shaun Harrison mistimed his tackle as Dean Ballantyne ran into the box and was brought down by the attempt . Dean dusted himself down and took the penalty that Connor Wallace saved diving to his right hand side .  A good three points against a good side , with as good a second half performance as we have produced all season . we now move on to home game against Hill of Beath in the league
