Kildare Championsip: Castledermot shock  Naas in Kildare SFC

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.
