Barton defeated AFC Dunstable, in the BedsSenior Cup, (4-1) on penalties after the game finished 3-3 at the end of normal time on Wednesday evening and progress through to the semi-finals.
Both sides made a number of changes to their line-ups as Barton went ahead on 26 minutes when James Bishop was caught in possession and Jevani Brown finished well.
Within a minute, Bishop made up for that and more as he rifled home from 25 yards to make it 1-1.
After the break, AFC took the lead on the hour with another typical Newman Carney free kick that eluded everyone on its way into the net.
Back came Barton though when George Biggadike brought down Ben Sawyer in the box, Mahmut Caglar struck home the penalty.
Again AFC took the lead when ex-Rover Jermaine Hall outpaced their defence and toe-poked the ball home on 75 minutes.
It looked like AFC had done enough, but Leon Simpson was penalised for shielding the ball by the by-line and from the set-piece, Sawyer slotted home.
Rovers then took the shoot out 4-1 as AFC boss Steve Heath said: “I was so proud of the team as we matched a side that is one place off the play-offs in the Southern League and could have edged it.
“Both teams played in the game in the right spirit and for a local derby to produce no cautions, is a great advert for local football.”
Barton's next League game is at Home against Uxbridge this Saturday with a 3.00 pm kick-off and then we entertain St. Ives Town next Tuesday ( 7.45 pm kick-off ).
