In what was going to be a tight game it was Christopher Dodd who had the first opportunity for the hosts after 4 minutes when he fired in a shot that didn’t trouble Connor Wallace in the visitors goal . Four minutes later a corner in from the left saw Christopher Anton get a free header but it went wide right of the target . Broxburn created a chance on ten minutes when Greg Binnie got down the right and crossed into the box where Connor Kelly headed over the bar . The visitors had strong claims for a penalty when Kelly was fouled in the box but the referee waved away claims . On sixteen minutes a corner in from the left was met by Nicholas Locke who was adjudged to have deliberately handled the ball and was booked for his trouble .Jack Beasley got down the right in twenty minutes but his cross into the box was inches to far in front of the incoming Binnie . two minutes later Dodd made room twenty five yards out to shoot but fired it over the bar . On 38 minutes Ross Nimmo sent a ball into the box that Binnie headed wide when unchallenged .With four minutes left of the half Dodd’s saw a shot blocked for a corner by Christopher Townsley .
The hosts took the lead in the first minute of the second half when a ball in from the left found GARY FERGUS at the back of the box and he fired home . Two minutes later Dodd’s found Wallace at his best saving from him at the expense of a corner . Nicholas Locke got on the end of a free kick deep into the opponents box but he headed wide right of the target . The equaliser did come on the hour mark when Nimmo laid the ball off to Andrew Gillen who put the ball into the box and found GORDON DONALDSON who scored to level the match . Fergus had a good opportunity to regain the lead two minutes later with a free header from a corner but it went wide left . The hosts did take the lead on 62 minutes when a ball into the box was knocked back out and as the Broxburn defence moved out the ball was lobbed over them where clearly three Jeanfield players were offside but no flag was raised by the assistant and CHRISTOPHER DODD slotted the ball home . Wallace had to tip a shot over the bar two minutes later . with ten minutes remaining Dodd’s saw an effort cleared off the line . Extra time was needed when with two minutes remaining Greg Binnie knocked on a long ball over the home defence for CONOR KELLY to run on to and score to extend the game .
In the first period of extra time Conor Kelly came close on 100 minutes when his shot from the left went just wide of the right hand post .Craig Scott was set up by Binnie two minutes later but his effort went wide left of the goals .
The hosts took the lead in the first minute of the second period of extra time when Rhys Davies was through and Wallace saved his effort for a corner .When the corner came in it fell into the middle of the box where AARON WHITEHEAD prodded the ball home .. With the visitors trying to get another equaliser Jeanfield secured their passage with the last kick of the ball when a quick throw found RICHARD DONOVAN in the box and he scored before the referee blew for time up at the restart . A bare bones squad today but everyone gave their all and were maybe unfortunate to go out the cup .
