LATE Goals from Doug Rowe and skipper Mat Jones earned Fareham a 2-1 Wessex premier derby win against Horndean.
It was tough on the Deans who had looked the better side for almost 85 minutes of the contest.
Chamal Fenelon teed up Dan Hayes to net against his old club.
But Gary Austin set up Rowe to level for Fareham, who were wearing their new stripes, with five minutes to go before Jones then headed home Danny Thompson’s free-kick.
‘If I’m honest, I couldn’t see us getting much after going a goal behind,’ said Reds boss Matt Parr.
‘But my lads are full of surprises, and even though they didn’t play well, they still managed to turn things around.
‘It was a typical local derby between two competitive sides and fortunately we came out on top after 90 minutes.’
Moneyfields crashed to a 3-0 defeat against Totton & Eling.
Manager Miles Rutherford was left furious after Craig Feeney’s treble undid his side.
‘That was a shocking performance,’ he said.
‘We were outplayed, outfought and it really was men against boys.
‘They looked like the side that’s won so many matches on the road but there’s no excuse for that display.
‘It was a complete contrast to last week and it’s the lack of consistency that’s so frustrating.’
The loss was a big come down for Moneys after their 6-0 Vase win the previous week.
Danny Boyle also saw red for a second bookable offence.
Alex Easton grabbed a brace to help Hayling United to a 3-1 home win over Alton Town.
Easton struck twice before the break, and Aaron Kinchen netted a terrific 30-yard strike late on to seal victory.
‘It was a much-needed win and sweet as it came against my old club,’ said Humbugs assistant-manager Mark Tigwell.
‘The game was scrappy on a heavy pitch but sometimes you have to win ugly.’
AFC Portchester’s injury crisis hit hard as they crashed to a 5-1 defeat at Bemerton Heath Harlequins.
‘We had both strikers, our captain and key midfield players all out injured,’ said manager Glenn Bridgman. ‘It doesn’t help when you give away three goals in the opening 12 minutes.’
Jay Ripiner scored for Portchester.
