From the kick off the visitors went on the attack with Alexander Miller down the right but his ball into the box was cut out by the keeper .A minute later Kieron Anderson lobbed a ball into the box but it would not come down quick enough for Miller .Broxburn had started the brighter and Nicholas Locke set up another attack in the first five minutes sending Miller down the right but once more Hall cut out the ball into the box . On eight minutes Miller saw a shot go wide and high from just inside the box .On nine minutes Alexander Murray was brought down 30 yards out from goal and Kieran Anderson sent the free kick goal ward but Stuart Hall pulled of a great save at his top left hand corner and as the ball broke to Miller he shot over the bar . A good move after quarter of an hour saw Craig Scott pull a shot wide left from outside the box .Stuart Hall saved well from Scott Richards a couple of minutes later after being set up by Alexander Murray . The opening goal came two minutes later when Anderson sent Andrew Gillen down the right hand side and his ball into box found SCOTT RICHARDS who fired into the net . A minute later at the other end a corner was met by the head of Rikki Dair but his header went wide taking a deflection on the way for a corner . Just after half way through the half Calum Adamson made a good run to the bye line on the right hand side and cut the ball back to the on running Mark Allan who shot just past the right hand post . The half hour mark saw a good ball into the box by Murray headed for a corner by Rikki Dair . With eight minutes left Richards should have doubled his side’s lead when Murray set him up but he shot over the bar .
The hosts came out the second half and were in determined mood as the pinned the visitors back . A minute in and Calum Adamson shot over from outside the box Almost an hour gone and a free kick into the box saw miller send a header just wide left of the goal . The Haws got their equaliser on 65 minutes when a ball into the box was not dealt with by the visiting defence and it fell to DANIEL WATT who had time to turn and shoot home from just inside the box into the bottom right hand corner . A minute later Miller set up Murray and his shot was tipped away for a corner . At the other end Adamson headed wide left of the target . With quarter of the game remaining Donaldson played the ball to Murray who turned and shot but Hall saved comfortably . Russell Grierson saw a shot saved on 75 minutes and when the ball broke out the home midfielder shot for goal but it hit his own player lying on the ground and bounced away to safety . Paul Allan saw a ball played into box from the left hand side come off the corner of the right hand post and bar and the defence cleared the danger . With a couple of minutes remaining the home keeper was booked for a challenge on Ross Nimmo just outside the box and Murray’s free kick was parried and the defender mopped up just failing to keep the ball in play at the expense of a corner . The corner was played in and it broke out to Donaldson 20 yards out but the defender sent his shot just wide left of the target . A draw was probably a fair result in the end but we could have finished it in the first had we had a little more rub of the green .
