Doncaster earned a comfortable 2-0 victory at home to Southend United while Yeovil won by a greater margin on home turf against perennial strugglers Carlisle United.
Stephen Foster opened the scoring for Doncaster on 12 minutes with Paul Green putting the gloss on the triumph on 55 minutes.
Yeovil were equally impressive at Huish Park with the prolific Kevin Gall (pictured) grabbing the headlines for The Glovers.
Gall has now scored 17 goals in his last 13 league appearances for the Conference champions and notched on four and 18 minutes against Carlisle with Kirk Jackson (79) making it three for The Glovers, as The Cumbrians suffered their second successive defeat.
Third Division title favourites Hull City suffered an early season setback as they were beaten 2-1 by fellow promotion hopefuls Oxford United.
Steve Basham has scored in all three appearances this term for The U's and found the back of the net twice in the space of five first-half minutes.
Hull were given a glimmer of hope when Oxford's Julian Alsop was sent off midway through the second half for two bookable offences but only had Danny Allsopp's 77th minute goal as consolation.
Kidderminster spoiled the opening of Darlington's Reynolds Arena with a 2-0 success. Danny Williams and Andy Bishop scored the goals to give The Harriers maximum points.
Cheltenham blew a handy advantage at home to Swansea as Lee Trundle proved the catalyst for a stunning comeback from the Welsh side.
Bertrand Cozic's first Robins goal and Grant McCann put the hosts in control before James Thomas pulled one back for the visitors before the break.
McCann's penalty on the hour restored Cheltenham's cushion but Trundle bagged a hat-trick for The Swans with his last-minute goal earning the team an unlikely win at Whaddon Road.
Lee Nogan was York's match-winner for the second week in a row as The Minstermen overcame big-spending Northampton Town at Bootham Crescent.
Journeyman striker Nogan netted just before the break to leave Northampton without a point or a goal from their first two league games.
Torquay United left it late to ensure they retained their 100 percent record as Matthew Hockley scored a minute from time at home to Lincoln City.
Cambridge United recorded their first win of the campaign courtesy of a 3-1 success at home to Macclesfield Town.
Daniel Chillingworth's brace for the hosts sandwiched Martin Carruthers's first goal for Macclesfield before Alex Revell secured the spoils for The U's with a minute remaining.
Huddersfield were held for the second consecutive week as they blew an advantage at Boston United.
Neil Redfearn put the hosts ahead on 22 minutes before the in-form Jonathan Stead and Ian Hughes put The Terriers in the ascendancy only for Paul Ellender to snatch an equaliser for Boston.
Bury are still waiting for their first points of the season after losing 3-2 at home to Scunthorpe United.
The scores were level at half-time after Chris Porter cancelled out Steve Torpey's goal for the visitors.
Torpey netted again and Peter Beagrie gave The Iron a cushion before Bury player/manager Andy Preece set up a tense finale.
Gary Alexander's last minute goal rescued a point for Leyton Orient at Field Mill after Luke Dimech had put Mansfield in the lead after 13 minutes.
Rochdale picked up their first point of the season after grinding out a 0-0 draw at Bristol Rovers.
