Torquay United 2-4 Boreham Wood
Bruno Andrade scored for the third successive game as Boreham Wood beat Torquay 4-2 in a match that exploded into life after half-time at Plainmoor.
Ryan Clarke's superb double save to deny visiting forward Shaun Jeffers and a goal-line clearance from Torquay defender Myles Anderson were the highlights of an evenly-fought opening period, but all the real action came in the second half.
The Wood looked to have taken charge when they scored twice in quick succession through Angelo Balanta and Andrade, both times Torquay being hit on the break.
A frenetic second period continued with winless Torquay pulling a goal back almost immediately through Ruairi Keating in the 58th minute, before Clarke performed more heroics to save Balanta's penalty.
Torquay then drew level in the 72nd minute when Keating crashed home his second of the night, but the visitors responded by heading straight down the other end and reclaiming the lead through Jeffers before Bradley Sach added a fourth late on.
