Wembley bolstered their survival hopes with a determined 28-run win over promotion-chasing South Hampstead in MCC Division Two.
Star batsman Adrian Green led the way with 47 in their total of 165 all out and is now closing in on the division's top three run-getters.
Intikar Mohammad took four for 15 for South Hampstead but Wembley's James Nolan claimed five for 34 as he helped to polish them off for 137 as his side claimed a crucial 10 points.
Wembley's second string could do with those points now after another defeat, their twelfth in 13 games this season, left them anchored to the foot of the Second XI Division Two table.
Opponents Barnes declared on 244 for seven in 50 overs, with Wembley's Richard Craig stemming the flow of runs with 4-37.
However, Wembley were bombed out for 196 to complete what is becoming a regular miserable afternoon.
The third XI are having no such problems after their consumate eight-wicket triumph over their Barnes counterparts saw them strengthen their grip on second spot nine points ahead of Harrow.
Chasing a target of 153, Wembley powered home via the batting heroics of Daniel Richards (81 not out) and Kaleem Shahid (54 not out). Ahmed Ansar and Faisal Kamawal had earlier claimed four wickets apiece.
