Thursday’s big Devon derby in the Western League Premier Division went the way of Buckland Athletic, who gained a 2-0 home win over Willand Rovers as the visitors finished the match with nine men.

It all started to go wrong for Willand in the fifth minute, when their player-manager Scott Rogers saw his penalty saved by home goalkeeper Grant Fisher.

Jared Lewington headed Buckland in front after 32 minutes, for a lead which was doubled by Shane Gill’s goal in the 72nd minute. That strike came after Willand’s Kai Fisher was sent off with half an hour left for collecting two yellow cards, and team-mate Simon Hill suffered the same fate with seven minutes to go.
