Kennoway kicked off up the slope and it was on 4 minutes they created the first chance when Lee Bryce got down the left and crossed into the box where Mathew Gay met it with his head but was off target . Broxburn had their first good chance when Ewan Herriot put a ball in to Alexander Murray who turned and shot just wide of the right hand post . Quarter of an hour gone and Bryce and Collins combined to put a dangerous ball into the box but Grant Gavin cleared the danger . A corner on 18 minutes caused mayhem in the visitors box but they eventually cleared the danger . A minute later Broxburn should have gone in front . Scott Richards played in Alexander Murray on the left who squared to Alexander Miller who with the goal gaping some how screwed his shot wide right of the target .A couple of minutes later Murray and Miller combined to carve out a chance but the latters shot was deflected for a corner . Half way through the half Miller was brought down a couple of yards outside the box and Kieran Anderson sent in a wicked free kick which Robbie Paterson saved well . Miller cut a ball across the box a few minutes later but was behind his three team mates and the chance was gone . Scott Richards scorned a chance when lifting the ball over the bar from 18 yards out . Good play later saw Richards having a shot that was well saved at the expense of a corner . The corner came in and Gavin’s header back along the box found no takers to turn the ball goalwards . The opener did come on 35 minutes when Kieran Anderson sent in a free kick to the back left of the box where it was headed down for SCOTT RICHARDS  to prod home into the bottom left hand corner from 4 yards out . Miller got down the right three minutes later and his  ball into the box found Murray but his shot went over the bar . With four minutes left a free kick into the visitors box was cleared out and it found James Collins who tried a shot from 35 yards out that went just over the bar .A minute to go in the half and the industrious Craig Johnstone got down the right and his cross into the box found Dylan Muir who headed the ball wide of the target .

Four minutes into the second half Anderson played across to Miller who’s shot was saved by Paterson . Just before the hour mark a free kick out on the left was played in to the box and when it was knocked out Chris Gay tried a snap shot from 35 yards out that sailed over the bar . Kennoway got on level terms when a cross ball from the left eluded everyone and the unmarked CHRISTOPHER GAY gathered at the back of the six yard box before firing home . On 75 minutes a long through ball found Bryce clear but his attempt to lob Shaun Donoghue  went just past the right hand post . Broxburn took the lead again two minutes later when Craig Scott lofted a ball over the defence and a determined KIERAN ANDERSON got on the end of it before lobbing the keeper into the net despite the best efforts of the home defence . .With five minutes to go Anderson was shown a shocking second yellow card when throwing the ball over his shoulder it caught his heel before going under the barrier .The referee deemed that as kicking the ball away incredibly and issued a second yellow which ended his contribution . The home side smelt blood and with a minute remaining they got back on level terms when a quick throw in caught the visitors napping and DYLAN MUIR ran through on goal before putting the ball past Donoghue into the far right bottom corner . In injury time the home side almost got the winner when a corner into the box was cleared out but only found Liam Craig 25 yards out who’s rocket shot was destined for the bottom right hand corner but for the great save from Donoghue who turned it round for a corner .
