Round Towers Mark Scanlon holds off the challenge of Athy Danny O'Keeffe during the Senior Football Championship game played at St Conleths Park, Newbridge
Castledermot, Division 2 League champions, shocked Division 1 and Leinster Leader Cup holders, Naas, in the opening game of the Kildare SFC at St Conleth's Park, Newbridge, this afternoon.
After a game in which the sides were level on seven occasions, Castledermot eventually pulled two points clear to record an excellent win in the opening Group 2 Round 1 game.
Meanwhile Johnstownbridge, in control for most of the game, just about scraped over Clane by a point while Athy proved too strong for Round Towers in the third SFC game at Newbridge.
In Hawkfield Eadestown got the better of Two Mile House.
