Pools made the very long trek down to Devon to play SkyBet League Two side Exeter City and came back from two-down to earn a home replay.
In a `game of two halves`, the Grecians raced into a 2-0 lead with goals from Ryan Bowman after 21 minutes and Nigel Arangana just 8 minutes later.
The visitors came out for the second half in determined mood but it wasn`t until the 73rd minute that Nicky Featherstone reduced the deficit with a great strike from 25 yards.
And 6 minutes later, a mistake from Exeter `keeper Jonny Maxted allowed Nicke Kabamba to level.
Boston held League One side Rochdale to a 0-0 draw at Spotland in a game they probably could and should have won first time out on chances created.
However, Craig Elliott would have maybe settled for a replay before the game and the Pilgrims will fancy their chances at the Jakemans Stadium.
National League South side Maidstone United led at half-time at former FA Cup winners. League One outfit Blackpool, but in the end were on the wrong end of a 3-1 defeat at Bloomfield Road.
Saidou Khan`s fine goal on the half-hour mark had the Stones in control at the break.
But the Tangerines equalised 2 minutes after the restart when Ryan Johnson`s effort was deflected into his own net by the experienced George Elokobi.
Blackpool then took the lead 3 minutes later through Nathan Delfouneso, who notched his second a minute later to kill off the visitors.
League Two Northampton Town have a poor record in the cup in recent years but reached the Third Round after seeing off National League side Notts County 3-1 at Sixfields.
Successibe headers from Scott Wharton after just 3 minutes, Vadaine Oliver on 25 minutes and Harry Smith 14 minutes from time saw the Cobblers safely through, with Kyle Dennis netting a consolation for the Magpies 6 minutes from time.
Not too far away at Peterborough United, Notts County`s league rivals Dover Athletic bowed out 3-0 to the League One outfit.
One of the lower league`s hottest properties, Ivan Toney, gave the Posh a great start with the opener after 7 minutes and then Frankie Kent and Mo Eisa wrapped up the tie in the final 11 minutes.
BetVictor Isthmian League South East minnows Chichester City, who received a bye to the Second Round due to the demise of Bury, put up a really brave showing at League One Tranmere Rovers before finally running out of steam to eventually lose 5-1.
But the Sussex side held their hosts until the 62nd minute when Rovers broke the deadlock in rather fortunate circumstances – Corey Blackett-Taylor heading home with Chi`s skipper Connor Cody frantically trying to catch the referee`s attention to come back on after receiving treatment.
Morgan Ferrier quickly added a second and went on to complete a hat-trick, with Blackett-Taylor netting his second, although Chichester deservedly grabbed a consolation in stoppage time through sub Ryan Peake.
