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. 
  • Half Time:

  • 2-1
  • Wishaw Wycombe Wanderers
Camelon began the second half as they finished the first and Platt missed a fantastic chance to make it 3-1 as his header went wide when it seemed easier to score only a couple of minutes after the interval. 
Jordan Aitken looked dangerous for the home team, and he brought a great save out of Ross Davie in goal. Wishaw were struggling to stay in the game as their goalkeeper was keeping them alive.
Taylor Platt finally got his goal that his play deserved in the game. He was given far too much space in the Wishaw penalty area and he had the simply task of slotting past the goalkeeper after 56 minutes. 
Camelon continued to dominate the match, as the away side simply couldn't create anything going forward. The fourth goal was only a matter of time but it was unfortunate for Wishaw. They will feel aggrieved by the referees decision not to award them a free kick in the build up, and Duff deflected the ball into his own net.
Although it was 4-1, Wishaw still battled to pull a goal back but couldn't really create any clear cut chances. Camelon could easily have had a few more but they will be pleased to progress to the second round, while Wishaw will feel very disappointed that they could not build on their bright start.

Star Player
Camelon Juniors
Wishaw Wycombe Wanderers
Lewis Newlands was the star player for the home side, as his two goals set up the win for Camelon. He showed good composure to score his first goal, and his second goal was a great finish to the left of the Wishaw goalkeeper. The only disappointed for him would be he couldn't complete his hat-trick.
The star player for Wishaw was Liam Sneddon, as he created chances for his fellow team mates and battled well in the midfield. His block in the first half was impressive.
Magic Moment
Camelon Juniors
Wishaw Wycombe Wanderers
Although Camelon scored four goals with some great attacking play, it was the save from goalkeeper Matthew Gearon that was particularly impressive. Adam McCrae must have thought he had scored after only three minutes from a corner but Gearon made a wonderful save to deny him as Wishaw started strongly.
Adam Lynch provided this for Wishaw with his goal after only five minutes after his pressure on the home goalkeeper paid off and he was rewarded with a tap in.
