Bethel girls, boys manhandle Little Axe
LITTLE AXE — Annie Compton supplied 21 points, her varsity scoring high, to propel Bethel’s girls to a 56-22 plastering of Little Axe Tuesday night.
Compton scored in every quarter and Bethel outscored the hosts in every quarter.
The Lady Wildcats (5-6) led 14-6 after one quarter, 26-8 at halftime and 40-17 after three quarters. Bethel has won three straight games.
Little Axe (3-3) didn’t have a player score more than eight points.
Also scoring in double figures for Bethel were Parker Stevenson and Peyton Meiler with 10. Meiler posted two 3-point field goals and Stevenson had one. Sophomore Hannah Davidson, who finished with nine points, posted Bethel’s other 3-pointer.
Both squads canned 6 of 9 free throws.
Bethel coach Tara Satterfield suited up just seven players because of an injury and the quarantine status of guards Brooklyn Duff and Bella Thomas. Duff and Thomas could be available for Thursday night’s game at Konawa. Bethel will travel to Mount Saint Mary Friday.
