Beersheba held to fourth straight draw

 Ben Sahar’s 84th-minute penalty saved Hapoel Beersheba from its first Premier League defeat at Turner Stadium on Saturday night, but the 1-1 draw against Maccabi Haifa saw the leader drop two more precious points in the title race.

Sahar’s equalizer, which canceled out Eliran Atar’s opener five minutes earlier, extended Beersheba’s lead over Maccabi Tel Aviv to two points. However, the yellow-and-blue can move into first place on Monday with a win over Beitar Jerusalem at Teddy Stadium.
