A VIEW FROM THE TERRACE
The game got off to a positive start with an early Marty Wright effort narrowly going wide if the post. The visitors offered very little and the breakthrough came for Bo’ness when Wright slotted calmly home for 1-0.
A foul shortly after seen Hunter receive a yellow when it looked possibly like last man however the free kick was easily gathered by the BU keeper.
Before the half hour, United won a free kick from quick play down the right and as a result Robert Sloan curled a perfect ball into the box for Will Snowdon to leap up and out jump everyone and head the ball home past a help less keeper. It then should have been 3 when a corner was fumbled by the visiting keeper and Ross Philip tried an audacious overhead kick the flew over the bar narrowly missing the target.
Half time came with the homeside on a high at 2-0.
Into the second half and it started with plenty possession but not a lot of chances for the BU. A substitution followed when Colin Strickland went off and was replaced by Conor Scullion.
Allan McGonigal shuffled the pack and Scullion slotted into midfield with Wright going further forward. This almost worked as a Wright shot was saved well by the visiting keeper. BU continued to dominate proceedings but again not much more on goal.
A second sub seen Wright who was having a great game yet again was replaced by Callum Smith in a like for like swap. Smith made an immediate impact when he found the net to make it 3-0 on 76 mins. Only 3 minutes later Smith could have had a 2nd with 2 great touches to control the ball but was closed down before he could get a shot away.
The final BU sub saw Fraser Keast go off to be replaced by Fraser Eddington. It was soon 4-0 with good play and a great finish from Philp on 86 mins and Callum Smith rounded off the rout with his 2nd on 88 mins to make it 5-0. The gloss was taken away slightly when the BU keeper seemed frozen to the spot as Jeanfield found the net to make it 5-1 on 93 mins. Full time followed and a convincing win and display
