The first match of the day at the Tony Macaroni Arena, in the County Cup, saw Broxburn Athletic defeat Armadale CFC Orange in a thoroughly entertaining game. Broxburn ran out 7-3 winners in a very fluid attacking performance, with Adam Yorke particularly impressing for the side. 
The first chance of the game fell to Broxburn; a corner was played in and the ball fell to James Crosbie. His effort was subsequently cleared off the line by the defence.
The first 10 minutes were quite cagey, with no team really gaining a foothold. Broxburn’s Jake Bell found himself some space inside the box but his shot was saved allowing Armadale a chance to break. Matthew Hall’s pace allowed him to break down the line, but his cut back was cleared and the game remained level.
25 minutes in Broxburn created another chance. Ryan Campbell was played through and managed to round the keeper but the ball broke away from him and went behind for a goal kick.
Broxburn opened the scoring a few minutes later. The ball broke in the box and found its way to Bell, who finished powerfully into the roof of the net.
Armadale then managed to draw level, shortly before half time, through a moment of magic from Jaiden Muirhead. The striker glided past his markers and finished with a lofted shot over the goalkeeper - a goal that wouldn’t have looked out of place in a Champions League final.
Despite the leveller, it was Broxburn who went into half time with the lead. It was Bell who scored again as he was on hand to slot the ball home from a cross on the right hand side.

The second half was much more open than the first and it only took 15 seconds for the first goal to arrive. Adam Yorke provided an excellent low cross which was finished by striker Reilly Taylor – an excellent start for Broxburn.
10 minutes later Armadale succesfully pulled one back. The ball was won high up the park and Hall’s pace caused trouble for the defence, once again, as he broke away and finished with ease.
The celebrations from the goal, however, were soon cut short. Yorke found some space and slotted coolly into the bottom right hand corner.
Broxburn then netted another on 55 minutes, this time Lewis Gorman was the scorer. The midfielder’s shot was high and it found its way into the top corner from a wide area – we’ll say he meant it!
Once again, Armadale pulled one back. Hall broke away, rounded the keeper and shot towards goal but his effort was slightly weak and needed a touch from Muirhead to make sure it went in – both will surely be claiming it, however!
Striker Brodie Shedden netted Broxburn’s sixth a few minutes later. The ball was won high up the pitch and he made no mistake as he slotted the ball into the goal.
The final goal of the game came from Broxburn, with Shedden scoring his second. He broke away from the defender and finished superbly into the bottom corner.
The referee then brought the game to an end and Broxburn were crowned winners in this final. Credit should go to both teams who provided a thoroughly entertaining final – and congratulations to Broxburn Athletic 13s!

The opening goal - It was a great finish by Bell and left the goalkeeper with no chance.
Muirhead’s equaliser in the first half - One of the best goals I have personally seen all season.
