Barnet crashed out of the FA Youth Cup after suffering a 3-0 defeat to Barton Rovers
10:37am Thursday 17th October 2013 in Sport
Barnet’s Under-18s exited the FA Youth Cup after a ruthless Barton Rovers side recorded a 3-0 victory at The Hive.
The Bees youngsters controlled possession throughout the contest. They started brightly and Yasin Ben El-Mhanni caused several problems down the right flank in the opening 45 minutes.
He saw a shot from distance saved before Moses Duckrell was denied from close range by the visiting goalkeeper.
Barnet continued to create opportunities and Jack Taylor and Jake Knight were unable to convert their chances.
Despite the Bees dominating the first half, the two sides went in at the interval level.
The second period started with El-Mhanni’s deflected strike just going wide and the winger then came close with a curled effort which just missed the post.
On the hour mark, Barnet were punished for not taking their chances as Rovers were awarded a penalty.
Brad Johnson stepped up and his spot kick was saved by Dillon Barnes. However, the ball rebounded off the post and spun into the net.
The Bees had chances to level. Taylor headed a James Charles’ cross wide and Knight was again denied as his shot was pushed over the crossbar.
Barton had battled throughout and they grabbed a second as a swift counter-attack was finished well by Soloman Dawodu.
The visitors then scored a late third as Bees defender Kier Dickson headed past Barnes.
Barnet: Barnes, Charles, Dickson, Emmanuel, Taylor, Berkes, El-Mhanni, Cain, Knight, Duckrell.
Barnet substitutes: McKenzie-Lyle, Phillips, Laugenie, Testolin, Lannon.
