Network Analyst - OD Cost Matrix Help

Hi there,

I'm somewhat new using the Network Analyst extension and running into a problem I can't figure out how to solve.

I built a network dataset from a street centerlines layer.  What I want to do is, using the junctions layer (nodes at the intersections of the streets), create a table that gives the distance between the origin node and the closest other nodes in each direction.

The O-D Cost Matrix tool seemed like the way to go, but the problem is it gives me distances between the origin node and all subsequent nodes along the path within the specified search tolerance.

What I want is only the first node along each path from the origin node.  I attached a picture to try and explain this better. 

Any suggestions or help would be EXTREMELY appreciated.
