    Bry Flanagan notched 13 points before getting into foul trouble, and Tanna Baker walked away with 10 for the victors.
     
    “Bry got into foul trouble early, and the rest of the team stepped up and took on their roles,” said Bethel head coach Jennifer Lynch, whose Lady Wildcats are now 11-7 on the year.
     
    Bethel trailed Ada 12-10 after one quarter, but the Lady Wildcats forged a 27-24 lead at halftime. Bethel outscored the Lady Cougars 33-30 over the third and fourth quarters.
     
    Ada’s Aaliyah Blakely and Sami Jewett shared high-scoring honors with 21 apiece.
     
    Bethel will go to Konawa Tuesday.
