Aided by the gradual return of some key players from injury, Beacon Hill are belatedly finding their feet in the MWFA Premier League Women’s as the season nears its completion.
After a 0-0 draw with competition leaders Mosman and 1-0 win in last week’s grand final replay against Manly Allambie – their first three points of the season – Vince Vescio’s side have their sights set on another huge scalp this weekend.
Beacon Hill travel to David Thomas to face old enemy Manly Vale in another fixture that could bear significant ramifications for the title race.
Vale vacated top spot last weekend after a 3-2 defeat to Mosman, and with a two point deficit to recover, know any further slip-ups could prove costly.
Beacon boss Vescio explained how it has been a long way back to winning ways for his squad which was devastated by injuries earlier on in the season.
“I think from now on we will get back on track,” he said.
“It’s been a positive few weeks which has put a smile on the girls’ faces again. But there is a still a long way to go to be back as we were in the past years.
“Manly Vale is always a good game. We are a coming from a bad period and with them coming off a loss we will want it as much as they do.
“We know each other very well so I guess it will be a close game, where they are hungry to get three points off us.
“But we definitely will look to give everybody a run for their money in these last few games.”
