With tries, conversions and penalty kicks spread across both team's players, little separated the two side's as they kept fans on the edge's of their seats throughout the 80 minute dual.
Despite an early try from Mark Cueto, Sale had a mixed start to the match as their defence appeared poor on numerous occasions, giving away two easy tries in the first half.
By the second half, the home team had gathered themselves and improved on many areas they were lacking in the first, and brought themselves back into contention.
Saracens Ben Spencer will be left thinking 'what if', as his missed penalty at the end of the game could have given his team the lead, and perhaps the victory.
Going into the match the home team knew nothing less than a win from here out would do, and brought out their A game to put an end to Saracens seven game winning streak.
Sale made a promising start to the game as Cueto touched down the first try of the match after just two minutes of play. Following a scrum the home side niftily got the ball to the opposite side of the pitch for Cueto to speedily run through Saracens defence, giving them an early lead.
The away side soon got their names on the scoreboard though as Nils Mordt successfully scored his first of many penalty kicks.
Sharks allowed their opposition to score a couple of soft tries in the first half as Nick Auterac and Ben Ransom made clear runs towards their touchline.
As Kameli Ratuvou positioned himself to get on the end of Auterac's sprint, he placed Saracens first touch down of the match followed by a Mordt conversion, with eight minutes of play gone.
Half way through the first half, Sale won themselves a penalty try after a driving maul got the ball into their scoring zone. Jordan Davies went onto capture maximum points as he scored the home side's penalty kick.
Mardt's third successive penalty kick gave the away side the lead for the first time in the match as the ball glided through the posts, with just four minutes of the half left.
Saracens continued to pile the pressure on as Sale's defence failed them once more, giving Ransom another easy run to his touchdown line. Joel Tomkins capitalised his team mates efforts with the away team's third touch down in the 40th minute of the first half.
After numerous changes from either side shortly after half time, Sale put a stop to the relatively pedestrian start to the half, as Fraser McKenzie slid over the line following a break from the maul just outside of the 22 metre line. Jordan Davies followed through to convert the home side's try, leaving them just one point adrift from their opposition.
Not resting on their laurels, Sharks regained their early lead as Danny Cipriani, Sale's highest point scorer in their last game against London Irish, planted his first penalty of the night, just minutes before being substituted off.
The away team soon retaliated, and a penalty kick brought them back into pole position, with just one point separating the two teams in a tightly contested match.
With both team's applying pressure, and a significantly more solid defence line from Sale, there was nothing to separate the the two.
A penalty kick from Rob Miller secured Shark's a two point advantage.
Just 60 seconds later Saracens were also awarded a penalty, and it looked as though they might steal the lead once more, but as Spencer fell just short of the posts, the home side's crowd cheered in relief as they held onto their lead with just seven minutes to go, a lead that went onto ultimately win the game.
Sale will no doubt pick up a lot of confidence from their third home win, which will hopefully translate in their Aviva Premiership game next week away to Gloucester Rugby.
