Broxburn were quick out of the starting blocks, forcing 3 early corners in quick succession  and went ahead in 2mins when Marcus Millar powered the ball home from 8yds.
 Jamie Henderson then hit the post in 7mins after good play & cut-back from Jordan Sweeney, who went close 2mins later firing just over from 18yds. 
Syngenta levelled in 32mins, getting in behind the Brox defence to cut back & score from close in.
Syngenta were in on goal again in 35mins but keeper Liam Wilson made an excellent block.
Syngenta rattled the cross-bar from distance 2mins later
Half Time: Broxburn Ath Colts 1-1 Syngenta Juveniles
Miller went close for Brox in 52mins, his goal-bound header being tipped over the bar by the keeper. Brox went ahead again on the hour mark, Miller hitting a first time shot from 20yds, that left the keeper rooted as the ball found the bottom corner of the net.
Syngenta were level in 78mins, a free-kick swung in from the right & Millar stooped to head clear but could only find the corner of his own net.
Syngenta went ahead for the 1st time in 83mins, Brox couldnt seem to clear inside their box & the ball was turned in from 4yds( looked off-side but the goal stood).
Their lead was to only last 2mins when Miller battled hard for the ball to score a great equaliser for Brox from inside the 18yd box.
Victory could have gone either way in the last 5mins plus 6mins injury time but both teams looked relieved to have the draw at the final whistle. 
Full Time: Broxburn Ath Colts 3-3 Syngenta Juveniles
