Staff report


LAURINBURG — Scotland continued its volleyball mastery over its Southeastern Conference rival, Richmond.


The Scots swept the Raiders 25-22, 25-18 and 25-17 to improve to 12-1 on the season and 5-0 in the SEC. The Raiders have now lost five in a row, seven out of their last eight matches, including four straight conference contests to fall to 2-10 overall and 1-4 in the SEC.


“We played hard,” Richmond coach Shellie Wimpey said. “Hunter (Parks), Ashton (Davenport) and Jessica (Steen) got an ace in every game.”


Richmond will look to break its skid 6 p.m. Wednesday when it plays host to Anson. Earlier this season, the Raiders defeated the Bearcats in four sets for their first win.


JV Raiders escape in overtime


MATTHEWS — The Richmond Senior junior varsity football team rallied from a seven-point fourth-quarter deficit to down Butler 21-20 in overtime Thursday night.


Tyler Calhoun scored on a fourth-down play and Alex Alvardo tacked on the extra-point to give the Raiders a 21-14 lead. The Bulldogs responded with a touchdown on their first possession of overtime and elected to try for the 2-point conversion. Richmond JV coach Jason Norton said Butler’s runner was “stopped at about the one-inch line or something like that because it was real close.”


“We kept battling and we played really well in the fourth quarter,” Norton said.


Richmond (4-0) took a 7-0 lead on a Calhoun pass to Lavell Ellerbe. Butler scored 14 unanswered points before Josh Ellerbe tied the game in the fourth quarter with a touchdown run.


The Bulldogs had a chance to win the contest in regulation, driving to the Richmond 30-yard line, but Daryus Skinner intercepted a pass to end the threat.


Richmond will take on Anson 7 p.m. Thursday at Raider Stadium.
