Ardfield was the venue for the first round junior B hurling championship game between Randals and O'Donovan Rossa on Saturday, 2nd August.

It was a fine dry evening but with a fresh south westerly wind which blew diagonally across the pitch. It had little effect on the play and it was score for score for the most part especially in the first half.

Cathal Duggan was first on the board with a point in the second minute, but Skibb's equaliser came a minute later. Seadhna Crowley, from a free, and Eoin O'Donovan, from play,  restored the lead. Skibb got one back in the ninth minute.  Cathal Duggan scored again a minute or so later but two Skibb points came to make it  0-4 all at the first water break.

Skibb had a slight edge in the second quarter, Seadhna Crowley sent over two points from frees around the twenty five minute mark but it was :   O'Donovan Rossa  0-7  Randal Og  0-6 at half time.

On resumption, Randals from the throw in, launched a concerted attack which was finished off by Cathal Duggan's first goal, a game changing score in the first minute. 

Points from Donncha Collins and Seadhna Crowley made it 1-8 to 0-7,  with about thirty nine minutes gone. Skibb came back to narrow the margin, but with Seadhna Crowley scoring from another free, in between, it  was 1-9 to 0-10 at the second water break.

In the final quarter,  Seadhna was again on target from a free, and then came Cathal Duggan's second and decisive goal with about eight minutes to go.
