Football Nation Qualifying Cup 1st round

First thing you learn with a ball in the box is to clear it that was the downfall of the first half after half an hour, Oakley didn’t take long to thump it in the BU goal and take the lead
Bo’ness 0 Oakley 1

The Fifers could have been two after another blunder in defence and Andy Murphy had to turn it around the post
Bo’ness will have to sort themselves out as they have played second fiddle to Oakley and the half finish and now Max Christie will be looking at the format of the team in the second half
Half Time Bo’ness United 0 Oakley United 1

Oakley was still switched off after the interval and was made to pay as Chris Donnelly finished a cross ball from a corner.
Bo’ness 1 Oakley 1

It was now the turn of Bo’ness to switch off as a comedy of errors a pass back missed by the keeper and it landed in the net to put Oakley back in front.

The second half was already better than the first and it didn’t take long for Bo’ness to get back on level terms when Terry Hewitt nodded in a good ball.
Bo’ness 2 Oakley 2

Christie started to add subs and straight away you could the change in movement across the board. Brian Morgan the playmaker put the BU in front for the first time. Oakley was standing looking around after Morgan scored as he ghosted by the defence.
Bo’ness 3 Oakley 2

The Fifers were now playing much quicker and taking chances of scoring the equaliser. Bo’ness were now looking to ride the match out but so often it has gone against them. They did break forward but lost the ball and you couldn’t make it up a pass back to the keeper to thump forward and as kicked it ricocheted off BU player who got in front of it and Ryan Stevenson was on hand to finish the match.
FT: Bo’ness United 4 Oakley United 2
