Carnoustie Panmure 2
Broxburn Ath 5
Broxburn destroyed their hosts in a superb display. They opened the scoring in five minutes when good passing set up Nicholas Locke just inside the box and he gave the keeper no chance. The second was a wonder strike. When a corner was cleared it fell to Craig Scott 30 yards out and he shot into the top corner. Kieron Anderson fired in a free kick from the left 25 yards out and with Locke distracting the keeper with a timely run the ball sailed into the far bottom corner. A minute later Jamie McCabe got one back from the penalty spot. The visitors went 4-1 up when Locke gathered the ball in his own half sped down the right hand side leaving defenders in his wake before shooting home with two minutes of the first half remaining. Almost immediately Scott Richards made it five getting on the end of a Anderson free kick deep into the box. Steven Cook got his side’s second on half-time.
