London Bees 2 (Howells 49, Georgiou 63) Yeovil Town 2 (Knapman 28, Cossens 58)
Andria Georgiou climbed off the bench and fired in a free kick to secure a valuable point for London Bees against promotion-chasing Yeovil Town.
An exciting first half produced hatfuls of chances at both ends, with Bees goalkeeper Sophie Harris in exceptional form to deny multiple long range efforts.
She was beaten in the 28th minute, however, as Natasha Knapman opened the scoring, keeping her cool admirably when through on goal.
Going behind seemingly knocked the hosts' confidence, already down after a recent disappointing run of three defeats in a row in all competitions, and their composure on the ball suffered on a warm and draining afternoon at The Hive.
But the Bees returned for the second half resurgent and, after a smart Gemma Fraser through ball, Paula Howells did well to slide the ball past Alice Evans and into the far corner for a 48th minute equaliser.
Yeovil refused to settle for a point and substitute Shauna Cossens made an almost immediate impact, finishing beautifully from the edge of the box on 58 minutes.
Bees' own substitute Georgiou was not to be outdone though, equalising with a marvellous free kick from a similar distance five minutes later as Yeovil dropped points in WSL 2 for the first time since the World Cup concluded.
