Wishaw came into the match after a slow start in the league, with a 3-1 defeat to Mossend and 0-0 draw with EKYM. However they would be hoping to build on their cup success from last season, when they reached the semi final of the league cup and regional cup.
Camelon Juniors have had a mixed start to their season, winning one and losing two.
Wishaw started off much brighter than their Falkirk opponents, as defender Adam McCrae had a header from a corner brilliantly saved by Matthew Gearon in the Camelon goal after only three minutes. Adam Walker also had a good chance for Wishaw to take the lead but his effort when just wide only moments later.
Adam Lynch finally gave the away side the lead after five minutes, as the striker was played through on goal and beat the Camelon goalkeeper to the ball. He had the simply task of then finishing into an empty net to give his team a deserved lead.
Camelon slowly began to come back into the match and won a couple of free kicks but nothing came of them, with the Wishaw defence standing firm.
Camelon had a great chance to equalise after15 minutes with their first real chance of the game, as Taylor Platt couldn't finish from only six yards out as Liam Sneddon made a fantastic block to deny him. Camelon Juniors were however growing back into the game.
The Falkirk side continued to put the pressure on the away side, and their good work eventually paid off after 25 minutes as they scored a deserved equaliser. Lewis Newlands done brilliantly as he was played through on the left side of the goal, as he dragged the ball back to beat the onrushing defender Lee Duff. He was then able to pick his spot and beat Ross Davie in goal.
Wishaw just couldn't get a foothold in the game, with the home team winning the majority of the second balls and winning corners regularly. The pressure would tell as they went in front only ten minutes after equalising.
Newlands got his second goal of the game and this was arguably better than his first, after finding a huge amount of space on the left side again. He kept his cool to finish smartly past the goalkeeper with only ten minutes of the first half remaining.
Camelon looked dangerous and the most likely to score again, as they went into half time with a deserved lead.
