The Hi Hi’s produced one of their best performances of the season when they drew with the Premier Division leaders, Broxburn Athletic, in a league match at Albyn Park, last Saturday. It would have been difficult for a neutral to have picked which team was in first place and which was in sixth. The visitors more than matched the home side and if they had come away with three points it would not have been undeserved. Twice the Hi Hi’s hit the bar. In the first half a McGarry header came back to Nick Aitchison and his netbound shot appeared to be stopped by an arm. Loud appeals for a penalty were ignored by a referee who did the visitors few favours throughout the match. In the second half, Keir Russell headed a Robbie Peffers free kick against the bar with the Broxburn goalkeeper beaten. Clear cut chances were few and far between but mention must be made about Guy McGarry’s run in the first half when he beat five players only to be thwarted by the goalkeeper. Broxburn’s much lauded front pair of Errol Douglas and Gary Brash were were handled well by Nick Aitchison and Keir Russell and were both eventually substituted. The only blemish was the sending off, in the 79thminute, of skipper Auriemma for two bookings, Despite playing for almost 20 minutes a man short, the visitors still posed a threat and forced a few corners towards the end of the game. There were no failures in the Haddington side and manager Scott Bonar will be expecting a similar performance when his side meet Dunbar United in their next match at Millfield on Saturday 30th January.
