He could have scored himself but for the heroics of Saltash 'keeper Alex Easson.
Kings' Taylor Scarff opened the scoring with a brilliant curling shot after a clever lay off from Hobbs, who added a second from close range.
In the second half Kings began to dominate the midfield which kept Saltash on the back foot.
Sam Hepworth scored his first goal of the season with a wonderful effort which made it three, and Scarff then got his second before having a penalty superbly saved to deny him his hat-trick.
William Hartley capped a great midfield display with a goal of his own.
Saltash never gave up and their reward came when they managed to pull a goal back.
Kings, however, regained the intitiative and Callum Mather and Jack Tribble completed the scoring after some neat flowing football.
Saltash 'keeper Alex Easson was named man of the match for his heroic display.
Elburton Villa...2 Railway Beacon...3
RAILWAY Beacon made Elburton pay for wasting numerous chances by snatching a late winner in a pulsating match.
Villa took the lead in the 10th minute when James Saunders played in Jack Butler, who slotted the ball past the Beacon 'keeper.
Villa then missed a great chance to take the lead and were punished by Beacon, who scored twice in succession.
Villa levelled just before half time when Owen Weymouth drove into the box, scoring with an unstoppable shot.
In the second half Villa missed several more chances before Beacon had the last laugh.
Callington Colts...0 Activate Youth...10
ACTIVATE produced their best display of the season against an under-strength but spirited Callington side.
Activate played downhill in the first half and started quickly with the main threat coming from Moore and Langmead on the right.
It was this combination that created the first of Alcantara's seven goals.
The midfield duo of Horswell and Emery enjoyed plenty of space and linked up well for Horswell to score.
Further first half goals came from Alcantara and Langmead, whose shot was well struck from the edge of the box.
Callington did threaten but the solid defensive duo of Jones and Bassett in front of 'keeper Woodman ensured Activate went into half time leading 5-0.
Activate striker Portman worked tirelessly and in the second half Alcantara added to his goal tally following a good passing move between Beckett and Emery.
Jay Johnson came on in the second half and combined with Laing and Alcantara, who unselfishly passed the ball to Le Blanc to make it 10, giving Activate 'keeper Woodman his second successive clean sheet.
