Pride of place must go to Division One East side Exmouth Town who play at Step 7 and were drawn away to Wells City of the Step 5 Toolstation Western League Premier Division.
Exmouth won 1-0 with a Jamie Moore goal to record a notable giantkilling and earn a home tie with Sherborne Town next month.
Also able to claim giant-kills are Saltash United, who won 2-1 away at Western Premier side Radstock Town to set up a home tie with former SWP side Buckland Athletic, and St Blazey also beat Western Premier opposition in the shape of Bishop Sutton with a 3-1 win at Blaise Park that included a Seb Broomfield brace. St Blazey will host Barnstaple Town next.
Bovey Tracey will travel to St Austell in an all-SWPL tie after the South Devon side had a 3-0 win at home to Western League Division One side Welton Rovers.
Two sides had ties against Somerset County League outfits with St Austell needing extra-time to beat Ashton & Backwell 1-0 at Poltair, whilst Bodmin Town had a more straight-forward 4-0 win away at Minehead.
The two SWPL sides to go out were Porthleven from the West Division, who had a very hard task away at Buckland Athletic and lost 7-1, and Cullompton Rangers are out after a heavy 8-1 thrashing away at Western League Odd Down.
Joe Vyner and Kai Simpson got on the scoresheet against an off-colour Rangers side.

The score remained 1-0 at half-time.
In the 60th minute Ryan Zico-Black made it 2-0 with a great volley.

A corner from Mark Clunie was met with a powerful header from Ollie Feltham to bring Wellington level just before half time.

Sydenhams Football League (Wessex) Premier Division side Fareham Town were beaten 6-3 by league rivals Alton Town at their Cams Alders home ground.

Blackfield & Langley were involved in a dramatic game at home against Western Leaguers Bristol Manor Farm.
Nathan Lynch put the Watersiders ahead only for the visitors to equalise. Then Blackfield & Langley had former AFC Bournemouth defender Scott Sampson sent-off.
In a tactical re-shuffle, joint-managers Ashley Vickers and Glenn Burnett brought on newly dual-registered striker Alex Baldacchino and he then restored the hosts' advantage.
As the game headed into stoppage time, the visitors made it 2-2 and the tie looked destined to go for a reply, only for former Bournemouth Poppies defender Kane Daysh to score a thumping header in the 4th minute of added on time to seal a place in the First Round for the ten-men.
West Midlands (Regional) League side AFC Wulfrunians enjoyed a fine away day at Midland Comination outfit Pershore Town as they won 5-2.
Danny Crudgington netted a penalty on 15 minutes and he grabbed his second 9 minutes later.
It was 3-0 just before the break, thanks to Liam Wilkinson but Ben Hayes’s strike 5 minutes after the interval gave his side hope.
Hayes then netted another to set up a grandstand finale but Crudgington completed his hat-trick to make it 4-2 with 10 minutes remaining.
And there was still time for Jake Webb to make it five in the dying minutes to complete a superb day.
Liam Currell was on target to help Swanage & Herston to overcome United Services Portsmouth down on the south coast – but the hosts were unlucky not to force a replay when Danny Mycock hit the post.
Currell made them pay by making it 2-0 late on and Paul Best added another.
North West Counties League side Formby were in fine form as they beat Baris Northern Counties East League outfit Selby Town 5-1 away from home with goals from Emini Adegbenroe and Jason Carey with two apiece and Paul Speed, while NCEL Parkgate reversed that trend by enjoying away day success with a 2-0 win at NWCL Ashton Town, courtesy of Nathan Forbes-Swindells and Jasob Walters-Lang.

Wantage then ran amok scoring five times in extra-time. Claydon completed a hat trick with further goals coming from John McMahon and Tom Rowe.
