The second-half saw a complete turnaround of fortunes and an early goal set the tone.
Within a minute of the restart Barton had equalised for The Rocks, hitting a first time shot from the edge of the box, which looped in the air and fell just under the crossbar as Baitup desperately backtracked.
While Burgess Hill continued to work hard, from that moment on Bognor controlled the game.
Bognor’s Barton was key to the performance, she peppered the Burgess Hill goal with shots from outside the box and was a constant threat. One of her free-kicks hit the post while another just crept over the bar.
Her next free-kick would prove to be more accurate. From just outside the box, she curled it into the top right corner to give Bognor the lead.
The third goal put the result beyond doubt but came in unfortunate circumstances for Burgess Hill’s Tansey and Baitup, the defender’s clearance was sliced towards goal and the bounce deceived the goalkeeper as it spun past her into the net.
The Rocks saw out the rest of the game to see their name added to the trophy.
Bognor’s manager Matt Trinidad was full of praise for Barton’s performance: “I don’t think you will find a better midfielder in our division,” he said.
“Obviously, she got two goals, the second goal from a free-kick and she was unlucky in the first-half as well, so she could have had a hattrick today. She is a phenomenal footballer, and she makes our team tick.”
He added: “We played really well in the second-half, the first-half we weren’t as good, we just didn’t move the ball quick enough.
“We made a couple of changes for the second-half and scored straight away, which always helps. Once we’d got that first goal, I knew that we always had the ability go on and get right back in the game. We were always in control second-half I thought.”
