With a strong westerly wind at their backs it was Broxburn who took the lead after six minutes when a free kick taken by Anderson was blocked by the wall it broke back to KIERON ANDERSON 30 yards out who despatched the ball in the net off the left hand post .Two minutes later Camelon should have equalised when Ross Crawford was through on goal but Wallace stopped the shot and Gillen cleared the danger .On eleven minutes a superb cross field pass to Alexander Miller was pin point but the striker’s touch let him down and the defender stepped in to clear for a corner . The second goal came on 13 minutes when good build up play saw the ball finally break of the defence to CRAIG SCOTT 25 yards out and he fired home giving Shaw no chance in the visitors goal .Within four minutes it was 3-0 when a KIERON ANDERSON free kick wide left five yards outside the box was fired in to the bottom left hand corner .Half way through the half Camelon had a good move which ended when Ryan Kane fired well over from the edge of the box .The fourth goal came after good passing play and finally played to SCOTT RICHARDS 20 yards out and he fired home into the bottom left hand corner .Ten minutes of the half remaining Camelon were pushing for a goal on the edge of the box but some desperate defending to equal the attack cleared the danger . Alexander Miller had a shot saved with nine minutes of the half remaining .The last opportunity of the half fell to Craig Donaldson with six minutes remaining he fired a shot at goals straight at Connor Wallace who could only parry it and grab it at the second attempt .
With everybody expecting the visitors to make use of the wind advantage the second half it was Broxburn who took the came to the visitors and in 48 minutes Alexander Murray got on the end of a Kieron Anderson cross field ball and put it in the net only to be ruled out for offside .On 52 minutes Anderson got down the left and fired a ball across the six yard box but the defender got there just before Miller and cleared for a Broxburn corner .From the corner the ball broke to the edge of the box and Scott Richards fired over the bar .Good play four minutes later when played the ball across to Miller but the defence stepped in to clear the danger . With the wind continuing to blow Camelon got a free kick with 17 minutes left Connor Wallace saved pushing it straight to Alan Docherty who headed it straight into the hands of Wallace and he knows he should have done better . ten minutes remaining and Craig Scott set up Nicholas Locke who’s shot was saved . In the dying embers of the match Anderson was set up by Miller and ran goal ward from the left curling a shot past the far right post . With the final whistle beckoning Anderson got down the left hand side and fired a ball across the box that was just to strong for the advancing Murray . That’s 3 games 16 goals for none against in some terrible conditions can not argue with the stats playing well scoring well and defending well all ingredient’s of a successful side .Next weekend home to Broughty and hopefully the form continues please note this will be a 2-30pm kick off
