Randals were at home to Castletownbere in junior football league game on Saturday evening last, 28th July - the first home game this year. Weather was dry, but a bit cooler than of late, with a kind of westerly wind that was not helpful to scoring efforts at the western goal.

It was a close hard fought game, with no more than three points between the teams at any stage and that margin was only for two very short periods.

Aidan O'Sullivan was first to get on the scoring list, with a point in the second minute. Castletownbere were quick to get the equaliser but Gerard Lynch put Randals ahead again with a point from a free after six minutes.

Four points in succession, over the next ten minutes, put Castletownbere into a 0-5 to 0-2 lead but this was wiped out by Daniel O'Sullvan who, fielding a high ball at edge of the square, belted home the first of his two goals.

Points from Eoin O'Sullivan and Ronan Daly put Randals into the lead. Castletownbere came back to equalise, but another pointed free by Gerard Lynch made it 1-5 to 0-7 at half time.

It was a low scoring second half.  Castletownbere got two early points, to regain the lead. 

Seamus Crowley made it all level again. Castletownbere went ahead going into the last quarter, but Gerard Lynch was on target again to make it 1-7 to 0-10 minutes later.

Then Daniel O'Sullivan struck again, finishing off from a long range Gerard Lynch free for his second and decisive goal. 

Castletownbere got another point late on, and at full time it was :   Randal Og  2-7  Castletownbere  0-11.
