St Laurence's Daragh Miley spins away from the contact of David Gahan of Naas during the Joe Mallon Renault Senior Football Championship Round 2 game played at St Conleths Park, Newbridge

No doubt what was the shock result of the afternoon in the Joe Mallon SFC (Round 2) with St Laurence's defeating Division 1 and Leader Cup Cup champions Naas, by two points, 0-9 to 0-7.

It was a result fully deserved by The Larries against a Naas side that looked completely out of sorts throughout the entire game, Naas having raised just one white flag in the opening half, trailed 0-4 to 0-1 at the break.

Elsewhere Athy proved too strong for Clane, winning 2-17 to 1-14; Celbridge defeated Carbury while Johnstownbridge scraped over Round Towers by a point as did Confey against Raheens.

In the Pittman Traffic IFC there were wins for Sallins over Suncroft; St Kevin's over Rathangan; Kilcock over Kilcullen, while in the Tom Cross JFC there was a big shock when Caragh defeated Ballymore Eustace by a point.
