Broxburn started brightly but Linlithgow soon got into the game and Owen Ronald was put through and he rounded the advancing Connor Wallace but slid his attempt at goal into the right hand side netting . On eleven minutes Roddy MacLennan tried an overheaed kick but saw it go over the bar from just inside the box . Wallace saved well from Darren Smith on 14 minutes . Ross Barbour thought he could beat Wallace from 40 yards out but the keeper gathered easily . With 20 minutes on the clock Craig Scott put a great ball into the box and Nicholas Locke saw his glancing header shave the crossbar on the way over . Half way through the half Darren Smith put a cross come shot into the box and Wallace had to look lively as he tipped the ball over the bar . With half an hour gone Ian Gray got down the right and his cross into the box found the head of Tommy Coyne but his effort was easily save as he failed to get any power on the header . A minute later Cameron Ross shot wildly over the bar .Broxburn’s best chance came on 36 minutes when Alexander Miller was through with a defender to beat and attempted to go round him but MacKenzie stopped him in his tracks with Ross Nimmo free on the right with a clear run in on goal .Nicholas Locke was through and shot over on 40 minutes .With the half coming to a close Roddy MacLennan robbed Miller of the ball in midfield and ran through on goals  before shooting which Wallace saved .

Two minutes into the second half Nimmo put a ball into Miller who headed over . The opening goal cam a minute later when the referee thought he saw an infringement in the box and Booked Chris Townsley before TOMMY COYNE  scored from the spot just out of reach of Wallace in the right hand corner . Linlithgow doubled their lead when OWEN RONALD was allowed to create room inside the box before crashing a shot from the left hand side in of the right hand post .Nimmo and Miller linked up well to provide the later with a chance that Kyle Marley saved well as it broke to Cameron Ross he was adjudged to have been offside .With an hour on the clock Locke passed back to Craig Scott who’s shot went just over the bar from 25 yards out . Nicholas Locke saw a shot saved for a corner two minutes later . Nimmo saw an attempt on goal go wide left of the target . Owen Ronald saw an effort go wide left from the right hand side of the box . With the last action of the game Blair Batchelor sent a shot towards goal that TOMMY COYNE got his head to, to steer the ball into the net and end the action .
