Sham Barnwell's late winner meant that Hanwell Town secured bragging rights in the local derby with a 3-2 win over Hayes and Yeading United. 

Hanwell scored twice in the last fifteen minutes of the first half through Mat Mackenzie and Kain Adom before letting that lead slip when Moses Emmanuel scored in first half stoppage time. 

After the interval United got back level when Emmanuel scored his second, but Barnwell's 87th minute strike meant the three points stayed with Hanwell. 

The win keeps the Geordies in fourth place in the Southern League Premier South, but they have still played a game more than those around them. 

Hanwell could have taken a very early lead when some sloppy play by Hayes and Yeading on the edge of their own penalty area turned the ball over to Barnwell who took aim and forced Ryan Hall into a good save. 

United could also have got on the scoresheet inside ten minutes as Emmanuel got in round the side and cut the ball back to Adam Little but he shot narrowly wide. 

Hugo Sobte played a great ball out to Adam Lareef and he drove towards the box before getting the ball over, the cross was deflected but still found Macenzie and he was denied by a good save by Hall. 

Just after the half hour Hanwell found the breakthrough when Macenzie played the ball behind Barnwell, but he still got the ball and played it back to Macenzie and he slotted the ball into the bottom corner. 

Their advantage was doubled ten minutes later as Adom struck the crossbar, but Lareef managed to get to the rebound and he clipped a cross back in for Adom and he made no mistake with his second effort. 

Then four minutes into stoppage time Hayes and Yeading had a corner and sent into the middle where Emmanuel rose highest to head home and give the away side a chance. 

Adom could have restored the two-goal advantage when a piece of devastating footwork got him away from the defenders but he failed to catch hold of the strike. 

Three minutes later the Geordies were made to pay as Mo Bettamer crossed deep to be knocked down by Little to Emmanuel to dispatch his second. 

Sobte then managed to keep the scores level with a terrific double save, first denying substitute Alfie Williams but it was only cleared as far as Reece Cole only for the Hanwell stopper to make his second save in quick succession. 

Having just failed to head home from a cross Barnwell picked himself back up and with three minutes to play he grabbed the winner; he turned his man beautifully with a flick and slammed it passed the United 'keeper.
