WEMBLEY clawed their way out of the relegation zone after a winning draw at home to promotion hopefuls Shepherd's Bush.
In 56 overs they posted a credible score as they reached 233 for 8.
Adrian Green was pivotal with the bat with his much-needed 64.
In reply the visitors got off to a slow start and as wickets went down regularly Bush quickly fell below the required run rate.
They struggled to deal with Raj Amunuagama who took five wickets for just 60 runs and Wembley looked set to claim all 10 points.
Shepherd's Bush's Ed Reynolds proved to be the thorn in the side for Wembley as he held out for an unbeaten 53 as his side limped to 124 for 8.
The second XI remain bottom of the pile in their league as they were unable to hold off Shepherd's Bush.
T Patel with a cameo 52 helped Wembley post 216 in just over 52 overs.
The home side may have cut it fine in response but they were able to reach the total in 46.5 overs with four wickets in hand.
Wembley thirds were able to ensure that at least one of the sides took the full 10 points as they beat a poor South Hampstead.
They posted 169 but good work with the ball limited South Hampstead to 100 as Wembley claimed the win having bowled just 25 overs.
The win keeps them in second spot, 12 points above third-placed Hornsey and just 11 adrift of leaders Twickenham.
