Bishops Cleeve lost as Paulton dominated the first half and after James Byrne fired wide they took the lead after 14 minutes as Dale Evans corner on the right was headed against the crossbar by Joe Chandler who headed the rebound into the net.
It was 2-0 after 37 minutes as Evans floated a free kick and Jack Ball headed home.
Rovers should have added to the score as Kailan Gould and ball both had chances denied by Bishop Cleeve keeper Lewis Clayton.
Paulton made 3-0 on 50 minutes as Camen Harvey's free kick on the right to Ball who hit the post and Hillard tapped into the net.
Rovers lost the edge and The Mitres came into the game as Elliott Kennedy missed chances and Andy Hannah made a save from Will Tunnicliff.
Just after he saved a potential own goal when defender Sam Hedges deflected a cross goal bound.
Ball should have finished a cross from Gould missing an open goal.
