In the first minute the visitors went on the attack with Nicholas Locke having a shot that was deflected and the keeper saved comfortably . Lewis Hawkins had an effort go over the bar on five minutes . Three minutes later Ben Miller fired in a free kick that Connor Wallace made a great save from before Gordon Donaldson cleared the loose ball from the danger area .Conor Kelly saw an attempt at goal saved by Sinclair Inglis on 12 minutes .A minute later the home side opened the scoring when awarded a free kick just outside the box slightly left and SHAUN RUTHERFORD fired a shot under the wall and under Wallace into the net . Broxburn were finding it hard to get to grips with the game and good play by the home side almost made it two on twenty minutes when James Devlin saw a shot deflected for a corner after some good build up play . Cameron Ross made a good run and pass into the box to Ross Nimmo who’s shot went well wide of the target on 29 minutes . Tranent got the second goal they deserved on 38 minutes when a good move ended with BEN MILLER slotting home from wide right into the bottom left hand corner . Broxburn got back in the game two minutes before the half time whistle when NICHOLAS LOCKE was played in outside the box and his determined run into the box was finished with the ball in the net .
The second half started and Broxburn were on the front foot when a ball in the box caused mayhem and was eventually scrambled clear by the home defence . Tranent had the opportunity on 48 minutes to stretch their lead when Rutherford made a run into the box where he was fouled by Harrison and the referee awarded a penalty . Ian Black stepped up to the spot but Connor Wallace saved well to his left hand side . On fifty minutes Miller almost sneaked a third when ghosting in front of Wallace but he turned the ball wide left of the target . Five minutes later Miller tested Wallace again but Wallace saved at the expense of a corner .Bradley Barnett made a good run into the box but once more Wallace came to the visitors rescue . Half way through the half Ross Nimmo put a ball into the box where Nicholas Locke tried a scissor kick but Inglis saved the attempt . A minute later Locke set up Greg Binnie but he saw his shot saved as Broxburn had their best spell in the game . Tranent sealed the match on 74 minutes when Craig Purves was out muscled down the left then along the bye line before the winger laid the ball across the box to ROBERT BERRY to turn the ball into the empty net . The last chance came from the visitors when Nicholas Locke tried to lob the keeper from 25 yards out wide left but did not get enough power on the ball and the keeper clutched the ball out the air .
