Martyn Probert gave Sixes a first half lead and it was only the Biscovey keeper that kept them in the game.
The second half was much more even with Ben Cooper hitting an equaliser from the edge of the box to take the game into extra time.
Sixes went back in front within five seconds of the start of the extra period with Probert's second, but within five minutes Biscovey were awarded a penalty and Jimmy Penhall levelled.
Probert restored the lead before the start of the second period and added his fourth near the end.
North Petherwin and Boscastle featured in a thrilling tie with the scores level after extra time at 3-3, the home team won 5-3 on penalties.
North Petherwin playing with the wind in the first half had all the play but missed countless chances to go in at half-time goalless.
Boscastle were in command with the advantage of the elements after the break, but the hosts were able to stick with them in the goal scoring stakes.
With the score at 3-3 at the end of extra time two missed penalties were to prove costly for the visitors.
Simon Oliver scored with an outstanding header for North Petherwin with Callum Reeve and Josh Sanders adding further goals. Sam Haddy replied with a brace for Boscastle with Jon Brewer also on target.
Sticker went through 5-3 on penalties after a 2-2 draw against AFC Bodmin. After conceding three goals in 12 minutes to the same opponents last week Sticker still allowed Bodmin to take the lead early on from Matt Hooper.
Both teams looked to play football and an entertaining game ensued. Sticker deservedly equalised midway through the first half with a fine shot from Martin Bullock.
Bodmin again took the lead when a cross was unfortunately put into his own goal by Bradley Hoskin.
The home side exerted plenty of pressure with the wind in the second period but fell short in front of goal. However, with time running out a flicked header from Jack Boardman just squeezed inside the post to take the game into extra time.
Sticker began to run the visitors ragged after the ninety minutes but with luck not on their side the game went to penalties. The home side converted all five to the visitors three.
Altarnun went through at the expense of Gunnislake with a 4-1 victory. Sam Smith scored the first after a goalmouth scramble with Ashley Bowen doubling their lead when heading home from a corner.
Walter Medlicott scored the third with a good shot on the turn. Gunnislake got back in the game with a Kieren Jasper strike, but Altarnun sealed their passage to the next round when Stuart Cole scored their fourth.
Saltash United were given a terrific battle before overcoming previously unbeaten second division leaders Foxhole 1-0.
The only goal came from Ryan Tetley on the stroke of half time.
Lee Collins scored twice in the first half to give Polperro control of their tie with Calstock. Further goals after the restart from Josh Jones and Jamie Rowe gave Polperro a comfortable 4-0 passage through.
Holders Godolphin Atlantic were the only visiting winners with a 2-1 win at St Dennis in a game that was superbly controlled by experienced referee Gary Cornish.
The hosts scored through a Paul Rowe header, but couldn't deny the visitors their victory.
Bodmin Sports Trophies League Cup
ST BREWARD FIGHT BACK:
It was also first round day in the Bodmin Sports Trophies League Cup. St Breward scored their first goals of the season as they put out St Neot. It didn't start too well with Adam King giving the visitors the lead.
A good spirited game full of good football turned when Ben French equalised. Adam Bennett put St Breward front with Karl Croft giving them a 3-1 win.
St Merryn were beaten finalists last season, but there will be no repeat as they went down 2-1 at North Hill.
In what was the strongest tie in the round Gavin Swift and Paul Perkins scored for North Hill with Ashley Rescorla replying.
Gerrans & St Mawes United beat Tregrehan Mills as expected. Charlie Andrew and Giles Birnie scored a brace apiece in their 5-1 win with Ollie Growcott-Smith adding their other goal. Sam Rowse scored the consolation.
Ryan Parsons scored on his debut, two days after his 16th birthday as St Minver breezed through hitting eight without reply at Camelford.
Jason Northcott hit a hat trick and Corey Cleave a brace in their romp. Mike Kempthorne and Steve Wootton completed the scoring.
Southgate Seniors beat higher division Gorran 4-1 to progress. Tom Wyman scored a brace with Rob Oldaker and Dan Gerry completing their scoring. Mike Brennan pulled one back for Gorran.
Welcome Inn were too strong for St Teath with Ross Willcock scoring his second hat trick of the season as they won 6-0.
Jake Blythe added a brace with Neil White also on target.

GODOLPHIN STUN PENSILVA:
Fifth Division Godolphin Atlantic reserves, who have lost their opening three league matches, caused a big upset by picking up their first ever victory over previously unbeaten Pensilva reserves, who play in Division Four.
With the wind at their backs the G youngsters dominated the first 35 minutes but a great ball over the top set Arron Lane clear to score with a clinical finish to put the visitors ahead.
Godolphin battled on and a drilled corner from Tom Hargreaves was deflected onto the inside of the near post, the rebound striking a Pensilva player and nestling in the bottom corner.
Godolphin pushed on in the second half and created the better chances and a great burst of pace and a fine finish from Harrie Tilston put the home side ahead with 25 minutes to play.
A great save in the last minute from the home keeper kept the score at 2-1 and eased the G youngsters into the next round.
St Minver reserves went down 3-2 after extra time against higher division Grampound reserves with the winning goal coming four minutes from the end of extra time.
Ben Cleave gave Saints a first half lead, which was cancelled out with a cross come shot from Dan Smith just after half time.
Connor Bridgway restored the home advantage, but a lob from Tom Foster took the game to extra time. With penalties approaching Greg Dunn cracked a free kick from 45 yards that the keeper failed to tip over the bar and hit the net for the winner.
SAM'S THE PENSILVA MAN:
Pensilva won the only Premier Division match played. After a tight opening first 20 minutes at home to St Cleer, Jon Filbey closed down the keeper and then went round him to tap home.
Steve Rendle hit the second in the 35th minute with a shot from 35 yard that took a slight deflection and flew in. Good work in the midfield led to the third four minutes from the break when Filbey put in Sam Rogers to net.
Pensilva dominated the second half, but were denied by some great saves from Adam Connor in the St Cleer goal. Complacency set in and a minute into added time Jordan Goodison-Powell pulled a goal back.
STOKE'S SIX OF THE BEST:
There was one match in Division Three with Stoke Climsland winning 6-2 at Delabole United.
Tom Cleveland scored a brace with Alex Mortimore, Tom Savage, Ben Jeffery and Andy Cradick adding a goal apiece. Kieren Barrett and Michael Barrett replied for Delabole.
