Neil Smith`s side beat Boreham Wood 1-0 at Hayes Lane, courtesy of a goal right on half-time from Michael Cheek.
Solihull suffered a 2-0 defeat at The Laithwaite Community Stadium by promoted Woking, who are now top of the fledgling table.
Jake Hyde after 12 minutes and Toby Edser 5 minutes later scored the goals that maintained the Cards momentum from last season.
Sutton went down 2-1 at Gander Green Lane to Dover Athletic, fancied by many pundits to do well this season.
The Whites took a 10th minute lead through Ricky Modeste, but Jamie Collins pulled the U`s back on level terms right on the stroke of half-time.
Inih Effiong`s good form in front of goal continued as he restored Dover`s lead 6 minutes after the break – and it was a lead Andy Hessenthaler`s side were to hold on to.
Ebbsfleet United boss Garry Hill will be a relieved man as he saw his team pick up its first point of the campaign – twice coming back from behind to share a 2-2 draw with relegated Notts County.
Ben Turner put the Magpies in front after 14 minutes, but Josh Umerah equalised in first half injury-time.
However, just 4 minutes after the restart, Regan Booty put the visitors back in front only for an own goal by sub Jim O`Brien just past the hour-mark to be enough to salvage a point for Fleet.
Chorley and Chesterfield, like Ebbsfleet, are still looking for their first three-point haul this season, but both drew for the fourth time in six games.
The promoted Mapgies shared a 0-0 draw at The Chorley Group Victory Park Stadium with Hartlepool United, while the Spireites bounced back from two-down to share the points with Barrow AFC at the Proact Stadium.
Braqd Barry after 19 minutes and Scott Quigley 6 minutes later gave the Bluebirds their advantage that former Barrow striker Scott Boden reduced in first half injury-time.
John Sheridan`s men grabbed a point thanks to an 81st minute Mike Fondop goal.
FC Halifax Town and Maidenhead United both made it four wins from six games.
The Shaymen won 4-1 at home to AFC Fylde – the second successive game that the Coasters have conceded four goals.
Liam McAlinden gave the hosts a 12th minute lead that Tobi Sho-Silva doubled after 36 minutes.
Danny Rowe pulled the Coasters back into the game just before half-time, but Cameron King after 54 minutes and a 78th minute Lewis Montrose own goal sealed a comfortable win for Halifax.
Maidenhead inflicted a third defeat on relegated Yeovil Town, winning 2-1 at Huish Park.
It was goalless at the break, but Josh Smile broke the deadlock to give the Magpies the lead just shy of the hour-mark.
Danny Whitehall came off the bench to double United`s lead on 86 minutes, and although Courtney Duffus responded within a minute for the Glovers, they weren`t able to find a leveller.
New midfielder Alex Bradley had a debut to remember for Harrogate Town.
His 93rd minute winner earned the Yorkshire side a 2-1 win at the CNG Stadium against promoted Stockport County, whose sub Nyal Bell had cancelled out Mark Beck`s 54th minute opener for Town in the 69th minute.
Joan Luque put Dagenham & Redbridge in front at the Silverlake Stadium against Eastleigh after 16 minutes.
The Spitfires equalised 3 minutes after half-time through Tyrone Barnett but neither side were able to find a winner.
It was a similar story at the Racecourse Ground after Wrexham had taken an early 3rd minute lead through JJ Hooper.
Danny Sparkes pulled Barnet level 6 minutes later and the remaining 84 minutes remained goalless.
