The final three Prenmier sides to go through all did so at the expense of West Division opposition with Torpoint Athletic made to work hardest as a late winner saw them beat Godolphin Atlantic 2-1 in a tie that had gone to extra-time.

Elsewhere Camelford had beaten Sticker 2-1 at home and Liskeard Athletic were 6-0 winners away at Foxhole Stars.

Six West Division sides reached the last sixteen but only one of them did so by beating a non-West outfit.

There were half a dozen Devon Cup ties played on Saturday but one of them was in fact in the previous round!

Okehampton Argyle against North Devon League side BOCA Seniors was finally played at the fifth time of asking, but even then it went on as it took both extra-time and penalties before BOCA finally resolved the tie and they now travel to the University of Exeter in the third round next Saturday.
