Non-league Barnet keeps alive FA Cup dream
LONDON (AP) — Non-league team Barnet kept alive its hopes of reaching the last 16 of the FA Cup by drawing with second-tier Brentford 3-3 in the fourth round on Monday.
In 17th place in the fifth tier, Barnet is the lowest-ranked side remaining in the competition and was playing an opponent 71 positions higher in English soccer’s league pyramid.
Barnet twice came from behind to earn a replay, with Dan Sparkes’ curling 75th-minute free kick glancing off the bar and into the net to secure a draw.
The winner of the replay will visit second-tier Swansea in the fifth round.
