Broxburn got off to a flyer after only three minutes when Nicholas Locke was brought down in the box and CRAIG SCOTT was given the task of beating Robbie Stirling from the penalty spot which he duly obliged giving the keeper no chance . Two minutes later at the other end Daniel Purves put a good ball across the six yard box from the right but there were no team mates to take advantage of the excellent ball . Michael Linton put a good ball across from the left on 20 minutes but the defender cleared for a corner . Half way through the half Alexander Miller turned well but his shot was blocked by the home defence and turned out for a throw in . Ross Nimmo put a great ball through to Miller from the left but the striker snatched his shot on the volley and it went high over the bar . Ormiston had a good move on 29 minutes which finished with Liam Currie trying an effort from 25 yards out that went wide left of the target .A minute later Anes Subasic was through on goal but his effort was turned behind for a corner . At the other end Nimmo was put through on the left and his ball into the box was headed clear for a corner . Nimmo put another good ball into the box two minutes later but there were no team mates up far enough into the box to take advantage of the good ball in . With five minutes remaining a free kick 25 yards out on the left was well worked with Scott rolling the ball to Locke who’s shot just cleared the cross bar .The visitors second goal came not long after the home side were claiming for a penalty at the other end Locke got down the left into the box and his cross across the box was met by JACK BEESLEY who turned the ball home unchallenged to give the visitors breathing space . In the last minute of the half Locke saw a shot go just wide left of the target .
The second half was slow to get started and it was the visitors who created the first chance of the half when Locke twisted his way into the box before shooting wide with options available to him . Locke again created another chance but his ball into the danger area was cut out for a corner by the defender . On the hour mark Nicholas Locke was breaking clear when Seamus Russell pulled him back to earn himself a yellow card . JACK BEESLEY stepped up to take the free kick slightly left and 30 yards out to which he gave Stirling no chance putting the ball beyond him into the net by way of the top left hand corner . Scott turned and shot wide two minutes later as the visitors tried to increase their advantage .Miller had an opportunity trying to shake off the defender but the defender was too strong and cleared the danger . It was 70 minutes when Broxburn got their fourth with a long ball through the middle was perfectly met by ROSS NIMMO who ran on to fire past the stranded goalkeeper . Ormiston did have the ball in the net but was ruled offside on 72 minutes . It was all Broxburn in the last five minutes with Cameron Ross making a good run before shooting over from inside the box .Then Miller saw the keeper make a excellent save with the same player shooting just wide with the last kick of the ball . Another three points from a side that is capable of taking points from anybody on their day so satisfactory day in East Lothian and we now prepare for next week’s travel to Stirling University for our last league match .
