Penicuik wrapped up the points in the first half as they stormed to a 4-1 interval lead .From the kick off Nicholas Locke made a great run and his attempt at goal was turned behind for a corner .Michael Linton saw a shot from 35 yards go just wide of the left hand post on three minutes . Two minutes later A ball played out to the left found Ross Montgomery who crossed into the box and found KEITH LOUGH totally unmarked in the middle of the box to shoot past the unprotected Connor Wallace in goals .Penicuik doubled their lead seven minutes later when a ball through the defence found AARON SOMERVILLE with only Wallace to beat and he fired into the bottom left hand corner . Darrell Young could have made it three but Connor saved his header well and the chance was cleared . Half way through the half Youssef Bejaoui in the hosts goal made a great one handed save from Kieron Anderson .On thirty five minutes it was 3-0 when another ball into the box was headed home unchallenged into the net by DARRELL YOUNG . A corner into the box saw the visitors get back into the game when the ball was cleared back out to Anderson he put the ball back in and after a bit of panicky defending the ball fell to ROSS DONNELLY to prod the ball home from close range . A minute before half time Penicuik gave them selves a three goal cushion with AARON SOMERVILLE got on the end of a ball into the box to score his second . On the half time whistle a great run and ball into the box was cut out with visiting forwards ready to pounce .
The second have started well for Broxburn with a goal back right away when substitute Scott Richards put a ball through to KIERON ANDERSON who made no mistake from 16 yards out . A minute later Montgomery forced a great save from Wallace . Four minutes into the half the hosts again went three in front when a corner into the box was headed home by CRAIG HUME despite the protests of the visitors for a foul on Wallace the goal stood . An hour gone and Broxburn were taking control of the match >Richards saw his shot smothered at a second attempt by Bejaoui .Almost half way through the half and Arron Somerville saw his diving header from 18 yards go just wide left . SCOTT RICHARDS cut the deficit on 70 minutes when he made no mistake from his opportunity to score . Broxburn pressed and pressed but The home defence stood up to the pressure with Scott Richards coming closest with a shot coming off the bar late on .Bit of a mountain to climb on our first half performance .
