Premier Division rivals Basford United and Buxton kicked it off on Monday night when the visitors edged an entertaining game 3-2 in freezing conditions in Nottinghamshire.
A youthful home side led 2-0 with goals from Zak Goodson after 42 minutes and Jamie Reid 6 minutes after the break.
The Bucks fought back with two goals in 3 minutes just after the hour-mark from Bradley Grayson and James Handley to pull the tie back on level terms.
And then Handley bagged his second to win it for the visitors 15 minutes from time.
Twenty-four hours later, five more ties saw only one settled in 90 minutes!
That was at Throstle Nest where Farsley Celtic beat Premier Division rivals Scarborough Athletic 2-1.
Michael Coulson`s 32nd minute penalty put Boro in front before Nathan Cartman equalised just before half-time.
Jamie Spencer won it for Celtic on the hour-mark.
Division One West side Runcorn Linnets produced the evening`s only real `upset` when they beat Premier Division Hyde United on penalties.
It was a tale of spot-kicks at Ewen Fields as Connor Simpson put the Tigers ahead from 12 yards after 33 minutes and Louis Corrigan levelled – also from the spot – in the 74th minute.
It was straight to penalties, and Linnets triumphed 4-1 in the shoot-out.
It finished goalless in the all-Division One East north-east tie between Marske United and Morpeth Town.
But it was Marske who won the shoot-out 4-3 against their former Ebac Northern League rivals.
The all-Division One West tie at the Butcher`s Arms between Droylsden and Trafford ended 2-2 after 90 minutes.
Liam Caddick opened the Bloods` account after 35 minutes, with Matt Bryan levelling 3 minutes after the break.
Caddick scored again 5 minutes later, only for Aaron Burns to pull the visitors back on terms with 13 minutes remaining.
With no more goals, it was to penalties which seemed to go on all night before Trafford came out victorious 7-8!
And in the all-Premier Division encounter at Marston Road, Stafford Rangers and Marine AFC shared a 1-1 draw in 90 minutes with Luke Jones` goal for the home side 3 minutes into the second half eventually being cancelled out by Sam Tattum in the 88th minute.
But it was Rangers who held their nerve in the shoot-out, winning 4-2.
