John O'Flynn's double strike saw Barnet cruise into the second round of the FA Cup with a 3-1 victory over lowly Darlington.
O'Flynn scored either side of Micah Hyde's first of the season to settle the tie with More Diop's late strike no more than a consolation for the League Two basement boys.
The home side took the lead after 18 minutes when O'Flynn played a neat one-two with 41-year-old frontman Paul Furlong before slotting home.
Furlong should have made it two 10 minutes before the break but he somehow headed Albert Adomah's floated cross straight at Nick Liversedge from eight yards.
Hyde's strike two minutes after the interval made it 2-0 after more good work from Furlong at the back post and as Darlington pressed Barnet settled the tie on the break after 66 minutes when Ahmed Deen crossed to the back post and O'Flynn made no mistake.
Substitute Diop got his name on the scoresheet in the 73rd minute after being slipped through by James Collins but it was not enough as the Bees got their name in the hat for round two.
