Barrington played Hinton in the quarter finals of the competition last week, exploding into the game early in the first half. 

An early penalty gave Owen Tomlinson a free kick which he executed with precision over the top of the defence to score. 

The Barrington forwards kept up the pressure and Owen soon had his second. 

Lane Edwards was next to score, a goal with his left foot making it 3-nil. 

Just before halftime Hinton scored despite the efforts of goalie Ben Haynes and his backs. 

The second half saw a fatigued Barrington side fight hard to keep Hinton from scoring a second. 

Late in the game Owen used his great ball skills and raced from his own half to score his third goal to seal the 4-1 win.

Rohan Everett, Lane and Owen combined like a well-oiled machine in the forwards. 

Jarrod Commons provided strong support on the wing. 

Bradley Conomos, Will Germon and Callum Grady did everything their coach John Hughes asked of them. 

Makayla Battams, Lydia Higgins and Keira Macdonald have shown so much improvement while Thomas Bandy and James Terras were immovable in the last line of defence.

The team now heads to Sydney for the finals.
