St Ives Town 1 Blackstones 2
ST IVES went down as Blackstones exacted revenge for three league and cup defeats between the sides last season.
Ian Fovargue gave Saints the lead just six minutes into the match with a low shot from just inside the area.
But he then turned from hero to villain when his misplaced pass set up Blackstones' Andy Boome to equalise after 20 minutes.
The winning goal came after 39 minutes when Ashley Stevens netted a penalty for the visitors after he was brought down cutting between two Saints defenders.

The decision looked questionable as Stevens appeared to be outside the area at the moment he went down.
Dom Carminati and Lloyd Howard both went close to equalising for Saints after the break, but there were few clear chances, and the visitors made off with all three points.
Saints joint manager Jez Hall said: "Even though we lost it was a good performance in a tight game.
"A couple of decisions went against us, and had they gone the other way we'd have had the victory.
"Their penalty was outside the box and wasn't even a foul, and Stefan Lewis was tripped in the box in the lead up to the equaliser."
St Ives resume their league campaign on Saturday with a trip to Desborough - a venue where Saints came away victorious last season.
