The Richmond County Daily Journal today gives a slight nudge of motivation to its Richmond County Raiders, the team Butler faces Friday in the sectionals of the 4AA state playoffs. The paper mentions a Twitter post made by a Butler supporter in which he links back to the highlights of the September 11 Bulldog victory over the Raiders in the first game of the season. From The Richmond County Daily Journal – Rolling into third round:

The opponent? A familiar one: The Butler Bulldogs, defending Class 4AA state champions and the only team to defeat the Raiders in 2010 — a fact the Bulldogs seem to delight in highlighting, with a link on the team Web site and Twitter feed to video from the teams’ meeting Sept. 11 at Memorial Stadium in Charlotte, won by the Bulldogs, 21-7.
