Barkestone had a safe passage through to the last 16 with an accomplished performance.

Chris Tonge opened the scoring with a freak goal. He slid to keep a ball in and the goalkeeper misjudged it and allowed it to find the corner.

Ian Hollingsworth doubled the lead before Jo Lee converted a right wing cross to make it 3-0 at the break.

Barkestone scored in the opening minutes of the second half with Lee completing an excellent Barkestone counter attack from a quick free kick.

Simon Hollingsworth headed home a corner before Tonge completed a brace.

Kilworth pulled a goal back but man-of-the-match Lee responded instantly to hit an unstoppable shot from a tight angle to complete his hat-trick, before Sam Garner completed the rout.
