With every game in non league football off it was great to see the St Andrews park in perfect condition for the game .Alexander Miller on two minutes carved open the first chance when on the edge of the box he tried to round the advanced Lee Wilson in the home goal but when he did the defender stepped in to clear for a corner . Greg Binnie two minutes later laid the ball off to Nicholas Locke but he could not get his shot away and the keeper gathered the ball . Stephen Stark tried a shot from 20 yards out but Connor Wallace saved comfortably . With ten minutes gone a free kick wide right by Craig Scott was played into the box but was just too strong and it came off the bar on its way over . Miller thought he had scored on twelve minutes but the defence cleared . The opening goal did come after 14 minutes when a ball over the top to Miller was played in to JACK BEASLEY who remained composed before turning the defender and keeper before firing into the net . Ryan McManus for the home side went on a good run down the left on 18 minutes but was thwarted by Wallace who blocked his run and shot on the edge of the six yard box . A minute later Miller should have done better when through on goal with the keeper to beat his shot went straight at the keeper .Just before the half hour mark a good ball into the box was collected by GREG BINNIE before he despatched the ball into the net . The visitors were on easy street a minute before half time when a great ball through to Miller was then passed to Binnie who slid the ball to JACK BEASLEY who had the easiest of tasks to fill the net and duly obliged .
The second half started as the first half finished with Broxburn on the attack but Miller’s shot was saved by Lee Wilson .If the game was not already over it was on the 52nd minute when the visitors won a corner it was flighted into the heart of the box and PAUL QUINN headed high into his own net giving his keeper no chance . With Connor Wallace almost a spectator for most of the game it was amazing to see on the 57th minute he pulled off a fantastic save when a ball played into the box was met by the head of Stephen Stark ever so slightly to divert the ball towards the bottom left hand corner from the right hand side and the big keeper got across to tip the ball around the post for a corner ,he was not to be beaten today . Jason Penman had a shot on 64 minutes that was deflected over the bar for a corner . Half way through the second half Jack Wilson had a shot that was weak and Wallace saved easily . Good football in difficult conditions on 77 minutes saw a ball into the box by Dominico Gibson was almost pounced upon by Miller but Wilson smothered the ball and the chance was gone . Scott Richards after winning the ball on the half way line made a great run wide left before cutting into the box and forcing Lee Wilson to save . Over all a great performance and another hurdle as we strived to win the conference league . Every player played their part and were superb in their attitude , commitment and determination to turn in a professional performance and stretch our lead at the top .
