Broxburn Athletic Colts under 15’s Girls and Hibernian under 15’s Development Girls played out an enthralling draw in the South East Frankie Brown League. Hibs came into the match having lost 2-1 away from home the previous week to Musselburgh Windsor under 15's .
On the other hand, Broxburn went into the game having won their last game against Hibs city rivals Hearts 3-2, with inform striker Zoe Evans grabbing a hat-trick. They saw one change from that win with Aiza Iqbal coming in for Muirhead and them reverting to more a conventional 4-4-2.
Hibs saw the first chance of the game in the 5th minute getting a free kick in a dangerous position, but the ball was cleared by Broxburn. They then quickly countered at the other end of the pitch with the ball ending up at the feet of Zoe Evans, who guided the ball with her left foot into the bottom left hand corner.
Broxburn’s lead did not last for long though with Hibs equalising 4 minutes later. Hibs then took the lead in the 10th minute completing flipping the game on it’s head. In the 21st minute, Evans was involved again finding her team mate to send them one on one with goalkeeper but she was judged to be offside.
After this came a period of sustained Hibs pressure, with a throw in the 23rd minute falling to a Hibs player, but she blasted it over the bar and spurned her sides chances of going two goals clear.  The rest of the half saw a number of chances fall to both sides but they were unable to capitalise and Hibs went into half time with the lead.

Their lead did not last long though with in-form Evans striking again in the 35th minute for Broxburn.  The strike was the young strikers fifth goal in two games to bring her side right into the match.
Broxburn then began to control the game, creating chance after chance with the best falling to Evans yet again in the 52nd minute. Brilliant footwork saw her take the ball into the box, but she smashed the ball over the post and ensured the scores stayed level.
Hibs began to get back in the game more towards the end with a few offensive free-kicks and corners but they didn’t amount to anything. Despite this spell, Broxburn looked more likely to win it at the end. In the 64th minute, Evans got on the end of a rebound but her shot went wide and she was unable to get her second hat-trick in as many games.
Five minutes later Ellie Brash had a late chance to win it, but her shot was well gathered by the Hibs goalkeeper. The result meant Broxburn are now out of the title race, with a club spokesperson congratulating their push and saying that they “gave a great effort across the season to be in contention.”
