Sandal’s perfect home record in National 3 North remains intact after a stern test from Billingham on Saturday.
In muddy conditions at Milnthorpe Green, Sandal did just about to win 24-20 and stay in the race for promotion.
Tries from Rob Norbury, Max Whittingham, Luke Norbury and Simon Frewin, two converted by skipper Greg Wood, gave Sandal the edge and steered them to their 11th straight home success.
The result stretches their unbeaten run to 14 games and keeps them third in the league, nine behind leaders Chester and eight adrift of second-placed Harrogate.
