Broxburn started this match in whirl wind fashion with NICHOLAS LOCKE getting his head to a Kieran Anderson free kick into the box and the captain headed home .Scott Hynd forced a save from Wallace on eight minutes .At the other end a minute later Nicholas Locke went on a run through the hosts defence and he was thwarted by the keeper .The second goal did come after 11 minutes when ALEXANDER MILLER ran clear through and made no mistake from 12 yards .Darren Dollan in the home goals made a fantastic save from Kieron Anderson a minute later . The third goal came on 16 minutes in a great move when Jack Beasley made a penetrating run down the right and cut in about 30 yards out and made a cross park pass to KIERAN ANDERSON who cut back inside and fired home from 18 yards out .A minute later Anderson set up Miller but the strikers effort went just over .A great move on twenty minutes ended with Nicholas Locke forcing a great save from Dolan .Conor Kelly saw a lone effort from the hosts saved by the redundant Wallace in the visitors goal . Gordon Donaldson set up Anderson half way through the half but Darren Dolan some how tipped his effort over the bar . Broxburn were all over the home side and could have been much further in front . Miller headed just over from a corner on 25 minutes .Save of the match came three minutes later a great move through the home defence saw Anderson cut the ball back to Craig Scott on the edge of the box and the midfielder’s shot was bound for the bottom right hand corner but somehow Dolan got across his goals and at full stretch tipped the ball around the post for a corner . Sauchie should have got a goal back but Ryan Millar shot wide right when through on goals from the left . Anderson was unlucky when he went for a run and saw his shot deflected over for a corner .Chris Townsley headed just over on the half time mark from a corner in from the left . Broxburn put the game out of sight on 52 minutes when ALEXANDER MILLER got his second and his side’s fourth when racing through on goal unchallenged to fire past Dolan . On the hour mark Anderson was right through on goals but Lee Dawson made a great saving tackle as Kieran was gearing up to shoot .Gordon Donaldson saw an effort go wide right on 62 minutes . Nicholas Locke saw a fine effort saved well on 71 minutes . Ryan Miller did force a fine save from Connor Wallace on 78 minutes . Alexander Murray made his competitive debut when he came on for Kieran Anderson and he got his first competitive goal for the club on ninety minutes when racing clear and giving Dolan no chance .. A good day for the visitors and well deserved 3 points heading back over the Forth .
