Broxburn Athletic Colts were victorious in the second County Cup final of the day at the Tony Macaroni Arena as they overcame Bathgate Thistle by three goals to one. The match was closely contested and the crowd were treated to some quality goals.
The start of the first half was a sign of things to come as both teams battled for possession. Neither were able to gain a foothold on the game from the very start.
The first chance of note fell to Broxburn as Ryan Campbell struck the bar with a fierce shot, before a goalmouth scramble was hooked away by the Bathgate defence.
20 minutes in Murray Arnott forced a good save from Derin Smith in the Bathgate goal. A corner was met by Arnott but his header was saved at the near post.
A few minutes later Bathgate were on the attack as Callum Goldie’s effort went wide of the left hand post.
