Non-league Macclesfield pulled off the biggest shock in the first round of the FA Cup when they won 2-0 at League One high-flyers Swindon.
The Silkmen were not the only non-league side to beat Football League teams with Chelmsford, Hereford and Harrogate also moving into the second round at the expense of so-called superior opposition.
Macclesfield are sixth in the Blue Square Bet Conference Premier and they took the lead in the 63rd minute through a stunning long-range strike from Tony Diagne.
Things went from bad to worse for the Robins when moments later Aiden Flynn was sent off for the second time in four games when he was given a straight red card for a challenge on Macclesfield midfielder Sam Wedgebury.
The giant-killing over the team just outside the play-offs was sealed when Louis Thompson scored an own goal at the death.
Conference South team Chelmsford beat Colchester - 12th in League One - 3-1.
The hosts went ahead against their local rivals when Anthony Cook fired home from distance in the 23rd minute and they moved closer to an upset when Donovan Simmonds headed into the net in the 63rd minute.
Colchester pulled one back seven minutes later through Michael Rose's long-range free-kick but Jamie Slabber sealed victory late on.
Torquay had an unbeaten home record which had guided them to seventh in League Two but they went down 1-0 to Harrogate Town.
Chib Chilaka scored the only goal after 20 minutes to send the Conference North side into the second round.
Hereford, 14th in the Conference Premier, provided the first shock of the day when they dumped out League One Shrewsbury 3-1 thanks to two goals by Ryan Bowman.

Hereford doubled their lead nine minutes later through Ryan Bowman's fierce shot.
Luke Summerfield's free-kick halved the deficit on the half-hour but Bowman's second, a penalty, wrapped up victory.
