Broxburn crashed out of the Scottish junior cup going down 3-1 away to Glenafton Athletic . With a patched up squad the lads put in a sterling performance . Broxburn created the first opening on 3 minutes when Anderson put the ball in to Richards but the striker saw his shot go just over . On eleven minutes Conor Lynass tried to get on to a ball at the back end of the box but failed to get a shot away . Wallce in the Burn goals indicated a problem and was replaced by Young Shaun Donoghue .Three minutes later Donoghue made a double save turning the ball around the post for a corner .Half way through the half Richards sent Nimmo down the right and his ball into the box was cut out by the keeper . At the other end Lynass was through on goal but saw his shot saved . Half an hour gone and Scott McNaughton saw a half chance go just wide of the left hand post .Christopher Dallas should have done better when through on goals twice in the the last ten minutes of the half he poorly blasted wildly over the bar .
A minute into the second half and a snap shot by Alan Cairns was saved comfortably .Broxburn went up the other end and Nimmo put a ball into the back end of the penalty box and SCOTT McNaughton STEADIED HIMSELF before curling a shot high into the far corner giving the keeper no chance . Six minutes later the hosts were level when awarded a free kick twenty five yards out DAVID GRAY fired his second free kick in two weeks into the back of the net .Nicholas Locke went on a run into the box two minutes later but saw his attempt saved .Just after the hour mark Dallas headed over from a corner from three yards out .half way through the second half great football created a chance for Mampuya but his shot was desperately cleared of the line .Michael McCann saw a header towards goal saved by Donoghue .Under ten minutes to go a ball into the box was headed on and MICHAEL McCann was in the clear to score easily .Five minutes later the ball was lost in midfield and CAMERON MARLOW scored despite Donoghue getting a hand to the ball . in the dying minutes Shaun Donoghue made a great save to stop more scoring .In the last kick of the ball Ross Nimmo received a harsh second yellow and was subsequently ordered off . A good battling performance but it was not to be .
