Good Evans is Millbrook's match winner
Launceston 2 Millbrook 3
MILLBROOK did not have the best of time on their travels last season, so they were delighted to launch the new campaign by taking all three points from their visit to Launceston.
That was despite being caught out when Kevin Hatch struck to give the home side an early advantage.
Millbrook battled back to take the lead with goals from James Rowe and Will Matthews either side of the interval.

Sean Evans, who had a hand in both goals, then had a penalty saved after a foul on impressive midfielder Jack Quinn and Launceston looked to have saved a point with a late equaliser from Mitchell Hocking.
But Evans grabbed a last minute winner, rounding off a move, which saw Quinn suffer a knee injury.
Man of the Match: Jack Quinn (Millbrook).
Bere Alston United 4 Polperro 2
POLPERRO raced into a 2-0 lead in the first seven minutes of their opening premier division match at Bere Alston.
Having been promoted as first division champions, Polperro made the early running and Dale Hooper headed them into a third minute lead following a free kick.
Four minutes later Dominic Richardson added the second with a superbly taken free kick.
Bere Alston turned things around in the second half and drew level with goals from Mike Curtis and James Follett.
Nathan Blamey took charge in the centre of defence for Bere Alston, who went on to win the game with further goals from Alex Lowe and Adam Cunningham.
Man of the Match: Nathan Blamey (Bere Alston United).
Elburton Villa 3 Tavistock 1
TAVISTOCK were disappointed at not gaining any reward from an encouraging performance at Elburton.
Credit was due, however, to Elburton for some smart finishing with Jay Chard scoring two well-taken goals.
Tavistock settled well after falling behind to a Chard strike and were deservedly back on level terms at the break when Harry Southcott headed home from a free kick.
Chard restored Elburton's lead in the second half and Tavistock left themselves exposed at the back as they chased for an equaliser, allowing Dan Aherne the opportunity to wrap up the points for Elburton.
Man of the Match: Jay Chard (Elburton Villa).
Kilkhampton 3 Wadebridge Town 2
KILKHAMPTON had the perfect start in their first match since winning promotion to the premier division, racing into a 2-0 lead in the first 12 minutes at home to Wadebridge and securing all three points with a late winner.
Carlo Chandler, who worked tirelessly in midfield, opened the scoring after eight minutes and Liam Bunning followed up with a second shortly afterwards.
Wadebridge came back in the second half to draw level with goals from John May and Jack Lawrence.
But Kilkhampton stuck to their task with right back Gary Walters and midfielder Tony Curtis taking the eye while Lloyd Scaife grabbed the winner seven minutes from the end.
Man of the Match: Carlo Chandler (Kilkhampton).
St Teath 0 Saltash United 1
ST TEATH have lost a couple of key players since winning promotion to the premier division and will have taken some comfort from keeping the scoreline respectable against an experienced Saltash side.
Saints kept the scores level throughout the first half with 18-year-old Jacob Williams impressing at central defence while 17-year-old Matt Irwin did well on his debut in midfield.
Ted Meagor posed his usual threat in attack for the home side, but Saltash had the edge and launched their season with an away win thanks to a good effort from new signing Paul Simpson, who had an impressive debut after being signed from Bere Alston.
Man of the Match: Paul Simpson (Saltash United).
Liskeard Athletic 0 Torpoint Athletic 5
LIVELY finisher Brian Stacey grabbed a hat-trick to get Torpoint away to a five-star start to the season in the East Cornwall League's opening fixture at Liskeard on Friday evening.
Torpoint were always the sharper side against a Liskeard outfit, who are looking to bring through some of their younger players this season.
The switch to Friday evening, along with the inclusion of local players, attracted a welcome increase in the attendance at Lux Park.
Liskeard were encouraged to restrict Torpoint to a single goal from Sam West at the interval, but the visitors showed their superiority after the break with Stacey's hat-trick, along with a strike from Lewis Kershaw completing the scoring.
Man of the Match: Brian Stacey (Torpoint Athletic).
