Well, what an evening that was! With a cracking game at the Optima Stadium ending in Yeovil’s favour by 3 goals to 2 against a solid Weston-super-mare, let’s take a look at how the rest of the teams got on.

There was action on Monday night at Saturday’s visitors Chelmsford City, as they fell to a 2-1 defeat against Hemel Hempstead, thanks to 2 penalties converted by Joe Iaciofano, who scored the only goal in the Glovers’ visit on the opening day.

Onto Tuesday’s fixtures, and we start with Chippenham Town, who played out a 3-3 thriller with Taunton Town, after playing 75 minutes with 10 men. It took two goals in the last 10 minutes to save Taunton a point, but their strong start continues. Torquay United comfortably defeated Farnborough with a brace from Aaron Jarvis sandwiching a Brad Ash goal, as the hosts posted a 3-0 victory.

Slough Town lifted themselves off the bottom of the table with a 2-1 win away to Dartford, while there were two 2-0 victories, both coming for home sides. St Albans City registered their first win in 4 against Dover Athletic, and Worthing got back to winning ways following their weekend thumping, defeating Welling United.

Tuesday night also ended with new league leaders, as Aveley defeated Maidstone 1-0 to continue their fabulous start to the season. They replace Bath City, who rescued a point against a spirited Truro City with a 93rd minute equaliser, the score line ending 1-1.

Tonbridge Angels and Braintree Town played out a 0-0 draw, while in the final fixture of the night, Hampton & Richmond bagged a 1-0 win over visiting W*ymouth, with the unusual stipulation of finishing the game at 10:25pm (all fixtures kicked off at 7:45pm) as the floodlights went out not once, but TWICE! An 88th minute penalty settled the result, with the hosts dropping the visitors into the relegation zone.

And in Wednesday night’s fixture, Havant & Waterlooville played host to Saturday’s visitors, Eastbourne Borough. It was a dramatic affair, with all 3 goals coming in the final 10 minutes, and a red card for the home side to boot. A 90th minute penalty from Callum Kealy wasn’t enough, as it was immediately cancelled out by the eventual winner from Decarrey Sheriff for Eastbourne Borough, as they left as 2-1 winners.
