Winslow United secured all three points as they won 3-1 at Buckingham Athletic in the Spartan South Midlands League, Division 1 on Saturday.
The Easter derby fixture saw both sides go into the game without key players but it was the visitors who started brightly.
With just over a minute gone Tony Fields put United ahead. Rob MacDonald fired in a fiercely hit volley which saw Athletic goalkeeper Andy Hammond produce an outstanding save. The ball eventually ended up with Fields poking it in at the far post.
Drew Mitten then chipped the ball onto the bar after being set up by Liam Gallagher.
A minute before the break Simon King drove into the penalty area on the left hand flank and the match referee awarded a penalty to the home side for a foul by Fields.
Dave O’Dell stepped up and converted the spot kick to put the home side back in the game at the break.
Five minutes into the second United regained their two-goal advantage with an outstanding header.
Hateley Mercer delivered an excellent free kick which saw Derek Brown rise and produce a powerful bullet header which gave Hammond in the Athletic goal no chance of stopping.
Mercer was sent off for a second bookable offence after mistimed tackle close to the end of the game but United held firm to take the local derby bragging rights back to Elmfields Gate.
