Recap

United welcome the visitors Caledonain Braves to Newtown Park for the first time and we all know Bo’ness never make it easy for themselves.

Bo’ness opened up from the kick-off and looking for an early goal but for a break, the home side were left gasping when a breakaway saw an unexpected away goal, the first from the opening day of the season.  But thankfully for the defence the assistant seen enough to put up the flag for offside and it remained no score.

This was a wake-up call and slowly got themselves back into it and with the half time approaching no goals and an interesting second half to come.

BO’NESS UNITED 0 CALEDONAIN BRAVES 0

The second period was becoming bogged down in the middle of the field as both keepers could have Allan McGregors deck chair as they had nothing to do.

With ten minutes gone Max Christie made his first change sending on Craig Comrie and within a couple of minutes on the park he made the breakthrough all the BU. followers watching online would have been jumping up and down.

This has been a difficult season so far with no fans allowed in but the magic from Fanbase to televise the game live to your house for just £5.

The goal seemed to settle the side and started playing with ease as the BU were now controlling the match.  With ten minutes to go, Nicky Locke was fouled inside the box and a penalty was conceded by the visitors.  Up stepped young Bo’ness lad Ryan Stevenson who made no mistake and gave the home side a 2-0 lead.

Locke found a second wind and attacked the visiting goal and almost scored and time was up the ref had seen enough.
