The victory was the second in three starts for Farmington who dropped an 8-5 decision to Park of Cottage Grove in its last outing.
"Hinnenkamp and Jette stepped up nicely and gave us a glimpse of our offensive future," Farmington coach Paul Sorensen said. "Our defensive unit played another strong team game, limiting their scoring chances, and we did a much better job of staying out of the box. When we are even up I like our chances against anybody."
Hinnenkamp scored four goals and Jette had a goal and three assists for the Tigers who scored two goals in each period and led 4-2 at the halftime break.
Mitch Hilton, Chris Fitzgibbons and Caleb Hakala had the other goals for the winners. Michael Thompson, Dan Block and Kevin Clifton each added an assist.
Thompson played a big part in the offense by controlling 60 percent of the face-offs.
"In this game, possession is the key to winning." Sorensen said.
Goaltender Kyle Kratz picked up his second win of the young season with a nine-save effort. The Tigers outshot the Spartans 17-15.
Farmingtonwill seek season win No. 3 Thursday when it opens the Missota Conference season at Chaska.
"We still need to shore up our ground balls in traffic and a few minor things in our offensive sets," Sorensen said, "but I like where we are at this stage and I'm looking forward to starting the conference season."
