The home side created the first opening when Calvin Muttitt was played through into the box but Craig Purves blocked his shot at the expense of a corner . It was Broxburn who got the goals flowing in 7 minutes when Ross Nimmo gathered the ball in his own half and played a pass through to Alexander Miller who returned the ball to ROSS NIMMO who fired a shot from the right  thirty yards out into the top left  corner giving the keeper no chance . Two minutes later a ball into the box to Chris Townsley from Craig scott was knocked down into the path of Nimmo who saw his shot tipped round the post for a corner . On thirteen minutes a loose ball into the box was picked up by Cameron Ross who saw his shot blocked on the line for a corner . With twenty minutes on the clock  Nicholas Locke ran through and shot from twenty yards the ball was blocked and deflected to Miller but the striker could not get enoght power on his shot and Callum Reid saved comfortably in the home goal . Broxburn were dealt a blow when Jack Beasley hobbled off after 23 minutes and Euan McGill replaced the full back . Heriot Watt had their best spell after this before the visitors regrouped . With 26 minutes  Arron Singh made a good run down the left before shooting wide right from inside the box . A minute later Neil Laurenson  tried a shot from twenty yards out central to the goals but his shot went wide left of the upright . The visitors had an escape when a loose ball was not cleared properly by Nimmo and Arron Singh won the ball inside the box and as Connor Wallace came out to stop him he shot past the keeper and was unlucky to see his shot come of the far right post and was cleared from the danger area . On the 39th minute mark Jack Spence shot wide right for the home side . A corner at the other end with four minutes left found Connor Kelly who’s header was cleared of the line . Broxburn got a cushion to go into half time with  two minutes remaining of the half when a long ball down the right was chased and caught by Connor Kelly who cut along the bye line before crossing to the back post for ALEXANDER MILLER  to head home . Connor Wallace saved from Arron Singh in the last minute of the half but it would not half counted as he was flagged for offside .

Broxburn increased their lead in 53 minutes when a ball out on the right to Kelly who then crossed into the box and ALEXANDER MILLER  met it with his head to score in the bottom right hand corner . A fourth was added on 63 minutes when Cameron Ross set up ALEXANDER MILLER  who scored at the second attempt to complete his hat trick . The fifth came two minutes later when Nimmo played CONNOR KELLY through and the striker slotted home from just inside the box .  Miller had a chance with quarter of an hour to go but pulled his shot wide of the target . The sixth came from the penalty spot on 80 minutes when Eaun McGill was fouled twice running into the box and CAMERON ROSS  stepped up to the spot and gave Callum Reid no chance to score on his debut . Broxburn were in seventh heaven when Euan McGill fired in a free kick from wide left for NICHOLAS LOCKE  to turn the ball home as he came in at the back post from the right hand side .  The last chance of the half came in the last minute when Cameron Ross fired a shot wide right .A good performance from the walking wounded and the guys that came in done a good job . Only disappointment was another injury to our long list .Bud Porteous is going to be busy man this week as we prepare for our away game at Linlithgow Rose with a 2-30pm kick
