Beacon Hill made it four games on the bounce without defeat after snatching a 2-2 draw with Manly Vale at David Thomas on Sunday.

 In a topsy-turvy contest, both sides traded blows throughout the match before coming away with a share of the spoils.

Manly Vale went into the break with a 2-1 advantage in a half dominated by set pieces, with both sides scoring off corners before the hosts were granted an opportunity to find their second from the penalty spot.

However Vince Vescio’s side continued to push and eventually found a way back into the contest midway through the second half, allowing them to come away with a hard-fought point.

The result denied Vale a chance to go back to top spot after Mosman dropped points away to Seaforth.

It also saw Beacon rise from the foot of the ladder for the first time all season.

Their captain Annelise Allan, who scored Beacon’s first goal of the day and her sixth of the season, was pleased with the outcome.

“In the end we were actually pretty happy with the result,” the defender said.

“It was a too-and-fro, up and down the pitch kind of game. We usually lift against Manly Vale and they do too, so it’s always a good game against them.

“Luckily today we had our whole squad back which was amazing to see. We’re just starting to tick boxes and walk away with a smile on our face which is great.”

In other games Mosman drew 1-1 with Seaforth, Manly Allambie defeated Pittwater 5-0 and Wakehurst edged past Brookvale 1-0.
