On a bitterly cold day with a biting wind going down the park it was always going to take time to get going .Broxburn were the first to have a shot at goals after five minutes when Scott Richards shot wide left . Five minutes later Kieron Anderson done well to turn and shoot but saw his attempt go over the bar .On the quarter hour mark a great ball into the box was just to far in front of his team mates .two minutes later Scott McNaughton set up Scott Richards and some how Jordan Mushet in the Y.M. goals managed to block his attempt at goal and the ball was cleared .Kirkcaldy opened the scoring on twenty minutes when a ball into midfield was picked up by SCOTT SMALL who fired home from thirty yards with Donoghue slipping as he attempted to get across to the ball . The visitors upped the pace and good play from Anderson saw him attempt a lob over the keeper but Mushet got back to pluck the ball out the air . Adam Doig had a shot that went wide left on 26 minutes .Craig Scott saw a shot tipped round the post for a corner . Just past the half hour mark Nicholas Locke turned and shot but the keeper again turned it past the post .The same player made a good run down the right and put a great ball across the box but there were no takers .
The second half started with Broxburn on the attack and KIERON ANDERSON scored a great goal after turning defenders he fired home to level the scoring 3 minutes into the second half . A minute later Craig Scott saw the keeper cut out his cross . On 53 minutes Anderson created a chance but saw the keeper again turn the ball past the post . Craig Scott hit the post on 57 minutes .On the hour mark Mushet again denied the visitors with a double save from Darren Downie and Locke . A minute later Anderson and Locke made a good one two with Locke’s shot saved . Sixty five minutes on the clock and pressure was beginning to tell on the home defence as they visibly started to fail to compete with the onslaught on their goal .Ross Nimmo on for Michael Linton forced a double save of Mushet .Darren Downie was next to test the keeper as he proved to be coping with the shot’s fired at him . On seventy minutes there was nothing he could do as Arthur handled the ball in the box and KIERON ANDERSON scored from the spot kick . On seventy four minutes Ross Nimmo broke down the right and saw his shot tipped by the far post for a corner . Kieron Anderson fired in a corner on seventy minutes and CRAIG PURVES met it at the back post to head home .Darren Downie was again foiled by the keeper who saved with his feet to stop more scoring .With 10 minutes left a great ball to the back post area by Anderson was met by ALEXANDER MILLER who made no mistake from eight yards out . Alexander Miller thought he had scored again four minutes later but saw his shot well saved . The best goal of the game came with a minute left when NICHOLAS LOCKE juggled the ball past two defenders then another and another before firing home past the keeper by the way of the back left post . Overall A competent performance and progress in another cup .
