Table toppers Fermanagh lost their first league point in Allianz Football League Division 4 today due to a draw with Limerick, while elsewhere there were wins for London, Wicklow and Carlow.

At Brewster Park, Fermanagh came from four points behind to snatch a 0-13 to 1-10 draw with the Shannonsiders.

An early Ger Collins goal gave Limerick a 1-4 to 0-4 interval lead. The corner forward fired the ball past Chris Breen in the third minute.

Fermanagh bounced back with a quartet of points on the restart to pull ahead, but Limerick once again hit a purple patch.

The visitors claimed five unanswered points with John Mullane, Eoin O'Connor, Collins and goalkeeper Brian Scanlon (0-2) all on target.

But Fermanagh fought back with Seamus Quigley, Shane McCabe and Tomas Corrigan among the late scorers.

Meanwhile, London secured their first win of 2012 as they powered to a 4-30 to 0-4 victory over Kilkenny at Nowlan Park.

10 players were on target for the Exiles in a game in which they were never troubled.

Wexford native Llyod Colfer led the scoring charge for the visitors by registering 2-9 in all.

A brace of first half goals paved the way for Wicklow's 2-13 to 1-10 defeat of visitors Leitrim at Aughrim.

The hosts led by 2-7 to 0-4 at half-time with Tony Hannon and Darragh O'Sullivan registering goals for Harry Murphy's side.

Hannon's goal came late in the opening half to confirm a nine-point interval lead. Emlyn Mulligan was the scorer-in-chief for Leitrim.

Darren Hayden extended Wicklow's lead to ten points on the restart. Leitrim netted their only goal of the game in the 48th minute through Paddy McGowan to ensure a 2-9 to 1-5 scoreline.

Leitrim outscored their opponents by five points to four over the remainder of the game, but Wicklow had done enough to finish as deserved winners.

Yesterday saw Carlow run out impressive 1-15 to 0-12 winners over Waterford at Fraher Field in Dungarvan.

Carlow led by 0-6 to 0-5 at half-time, but the visitors succeeded in getting on top during the second half.

Brendan Murphy (1-1) netted the only goal for the Barrowsiders in the 63rd minute, while Daniel St Ledger also impressed with four points.

Gary Hurney top-scored with eight points for the Deise outfit, but he was also sent-off late in the game.
