Both sides had chances to open the scoring in the first ten minutes . First Nicholas Locke had an effort turned round the post for a corner by Robert Watt in the home goal and Callum Connely tested Connor Wallace from 20 yards out 4 minutes later . The home side opened the scoring on 10 minutes when a free kick was flighted into the box Connor Wallace came of his line and misjudged the flight of the ball as JOHN WILLIAMS got up to glance a header into the top right hand corner . The lead did not last long as five minutes later a good ball from Nimmo to Binnie at the back post saw the strikers attempt being turned behind for a corner . The corner came in from the left and found it’s way to the back of the box where GORDON DONALDSON was unmarked and he fired into the bottom left hand corner . Three minutes later Alexander Miller sent a ball to Ross Nimmo who cut inside before firing just wide right of the target . Aaron Somerville was played through on 26 minutes but Connor Wallace was quick to come out and smother the ball and stop the danger . Miller saw a turn and shot go just wide of the upright on 34 minutes . Four minutes later Samuel Jones was allowed to turn in the box and send a shot goalward that Connor Wallace did well to save and the defence cleared the loose ball . The same player a minute later fired an effort just over the bar . In the last minute of the half the home side had a corner in from the right that John Williams headed past Wallace but Jack Beesley on the line cleared away with a header for a corner .
The home side started the second half the better and two minutes into it they were in front when WAYNE McINTOSH got the ball on the left hand side just outside the box and sent a superb curling shot into the top right hand corner giving Wallace no chance . On 53 minutes good football set up a chance for Samuel Jones but Wallace was at his best to turn the ball away for a corner . Penicuik gave themselves a two goal cushion a minute later when AARON SOMERVILLE got the ball in space twenty five yards out and shot goal ward and it some how went under the diving Wallace into the net. This was a blow to the visitors but they dug in and tried hard to get back into the game . Penicuik thought they had scored a fourth but the referee had blown for a free kick before the ball was put in the net on 63 minutes Binnie set Miller up on 65 minutes but the striker only just missed the target on the left hand side . Half way through the half Penicuik scrambled a ball eventually out the danger area with Broxburn forwards ready to pounce . A good ball in from the right saw Robert Watt tip the ball over his bar to ease the pressure . The visitors got back in the match with 11 minutes left when a free kick into the box fell to CONOR KELLY who made no mistake in hitting the back of the net . Penicuik were under pressure as the visitors continued to press and both Miller and Locke had chances go a begging . in the last minute Alexander Miller saw his shot deflected for a corner and when the corner came in the referee blew for time up . Disapointing result but still not out of it if Bonnyrigg get a win against Penicuik on Wednesday evening .We will hope to still have some thing to play for come Saturday and will prepare accordingly .
