Broxburn 2 - Dundonald 1
Dundonald headed to Broxburn for their first fixture in the East of Scotland League. Dundonald manager Jason Dair had to change his starting line up when central defender Craig Wedderburn was injuried in the warm up.
The visitors had an early scare when Walton was caught on the ball in the middle of the park but ,with just the keeper to beat, the Broxburn player put his shot wide. Dundonalds first real chance of the match came when Smith did well to turn and shoot from the edge of the box. It was another fine piece of play by McKenzie that resulted in the opening goal of the game. The young midfielder drove into the box and was brought down, the referee had no hesitation in awarding the penalty. Campbell made no mistake with the spot kick. Broxburn thought they had got themselves back on level terms when they broke down the right and played the ball into the box with the goal at his mercy the striker thought he only had to put the ball into the empty net, but somehow Dundonalds keeper James Lennox got across to make a great save and give his side a half time lead.
Half Time 0-1
A long clearance by Forbs gave Dundonald the first chance of the second half but Campbells effort was cleared. Broxburn started to gain the upper hand and put the visitors under pressure. Goalkeeper Lennox made another great save to keep his side in front before Dundonald gave away a free kick, on the edge the box, which was fired into the bottom corner of the net. Three minutes later Broxburn took the lead when a ball in from the left found their striker at the back post with time and space to turn the ball into the net.
Dundonald never really got started in this match their passing was sloppy which resulted in them failing to create any real goal scoring chances.
