A LATE penalty save from stand in goalkeeper Julian Harders saw Mosman draw 1-1 with CC Strikers on Saturday at St Matthews Farm.
Off-season recruit Sean Toth gave the Whales an early lead, only to see hosts equalise after the break.
Toth then could have gone from hero to villain after conceding a spot kick following a handball at the death, but was bailed out by Harders.
“It was a tough pitch to play on, but I thought we played well,” Mosman coach Josh Ayscough said.
“CC Strikers played some great football, and when they got a penalty in the last minute, I was shattered.
“Thankfully Julian went the right way and made a quality save, we will take the point away from home.”
The draw sees Mosman move into the top four.
