Barnet 1-0 Yeovil Town
Simeon Akinola's second-half penalty gave Barnet a winning start as Yeovil suffered fresh pain following relegation.
Scott Loach beat away Remeao Hutton's sighter in the third minute, and the Barnet goalkeeper then denied Rhys Murphy.
At the other end, Stuart Nelson kept Harry Taylor's headed effort out with his fingertips, and after the half-hour Akinola went close with a header from Cheye Alexander's cross.
Akinola, looking very dangerous following the restart, stepped up to score from the spot after being brought down in the box.
Loach soon had to protect Barnet's lead with a smart stop against Murphy's free-kick.
