The game kicked off in perfect sunshine conditions and a good game was in prospect with both clubs needing to get points on the board . The pattern of the game was there from the start with a Cameron Ross corner meeting the head of Jordan Wright who saw his header well saved by Ross Gilpin in the hosts goals . Sean Ward had the first attempt for Whitehill on 8 minutes when he shot from 20yards out but saw it whiz past the left hand post . The visitors had a scare on ten minutes when a poor pass back was intercepted by Wayne Macintosh and he raced through into the box but Shaun Harrison got back and robbed the striker and cleared the danger . The same player at the other end got on the end of a corner but was Shaun disappointed to see it just miss the target wide right . A minute later Ross Nimmo set up Joe Tait who’s shot went past the post. The opening goal came on 25 minutes when good play down the left saw a ball played out to CAMERON ROSS 24 yards out to fire home into the bottom right hand corner .
Tyler Oneill tried an effort from 30 yards a couple of minutes later but it sailed over the bar . Broxburn Lost their player manager to injury on 27 minutes . Broxburn should have doubled their lead on 34 minutes but offside ruled out a god move and finish from Cameron Ross . The second did come on 40 minutes when a Ross Nimmo free kick into the box was challenged for by Jordan Wright forcing BLAIR TOLMIE to put the ball past his own keeper . The visitors started well on top in the second half and could have doubled the score line in the first ten minutes of the second half with Jackson Barker shaving the woodwork being the closest . The pressure continued and the home keeper had some inspiring saves to keep his team in it . There was concern from everybody when a Whitehill defender got the full force of a Jordan Wright shot on the face laying him out for a few minutes before being able to get up and walk off . Joe tait was causing all sorts of trouble for the home defence and once again Gilpin came to the home team’s rescue saving well for a corner . Jordan Wright forced another save from the keeper on 72 minutes getting on the end of a corner . A minute later Tait saw an other effort saved well by the keeper . Again it was Tait who got on the end of a long ball and the high ball deceived the keeper as Joe got round him and shot but a defender got back to clear . The visitors were going for more and a Cameron Ross shot came off the bar and away from danger on 76minutes Two minutes later Greg Binnie was the frustrated player has his shot was saved brilliantly by Gilpin . It was wave upon wave of Broxburn pressure and Greg Nicol will want to forget about his chance that came off the bar from six yards out with the goal gaping on 79 minutes . Ross had a shot go just wide on 84 minutes .Whitehill had the final chance on 85 minutes when the midfielder from 35 yards out saw his ball just clear the bar with the home side claiming there was a touch from Connor Wallace but the officials were having none of it .
