HEPWORTH reached the final of the Barlow Cup with a 5-1 semi-final success over Honley.
Despite the emphatic scoreline, first division Hepworth had to wait until the second half to impose themselves on the game.
Second Division Honley started brightly and took the lead courtesy of an early Nicky Lee goal and held on to their advantage until half-time.
However, the tide turned as Hepworth were level five minutes into the second half.
A Garry Webster 20-yard free kick was fumbled into the net to level the scores and 15 minutes later Hepworth took the lead when James Earnshaw was brought down in the box – he got up and scored from the spot kick.
The goal of the game came on 71 minutes when a pass freed Tom Brook and he found the net from 18 yards.
If that goal had not booked Hepworth’s place in the final, the game was as good as over four minutes later when a long clearance was mis-kicked by Honley’s keeper and Earnshaw side footed into an empty net.
Earnshaw completed his hat trick to give Hepworth a 5-1 win and a final date against Netherton.
