NFL Division 2A
Leitrim grabbed the all-important brace of points they urgently needed to further complicate the closing stages of Division 2A but they were put to the pin of their collar by London.
The game was level eight times as both sides tried might and main to pull away.
With the scores tied at 0-10 each and the game going into time added on Leitrims top scorer Ciaran Duigan took a huge hand in the outcome when he tapped over two meticulous points from play and one from a free during the four minutes that were added on to put Dessie Dolans men in the best possible position for their last game against Monaghan.
But before Leitrim made their winning move, they were given a severe test by London who played their best football of the season.
