A LATE try denied Sandal a seventh successive win in National 3 North as they were forced to settle for a 20-20 draw at Penrith on Saturday.

The high-flying visitors looked destined to add another win to their excellent run after Greg Wood and Alex Orr had crossed and skipper Wood had added two conversions, a penalty and a drop goal to their tally.

However, Jim Kilfoyle’s men were pegged back by a try in the closing stages as the sides shared the spoils.

Sandal, sitting pretty in third place in the league, will go into the new year unbeaten in seven games and with a 100 per-cent home record still intact.
