Jonathan Frost scored 12 points to lead the way as the Hornets improved to 3-4 this season with their second consecutive victory.
“The boys played hard and battled through a little adversity,” said Bethel coach Joe Cook. “We continue to execute a little better each game. Our defense definitely kept them at bay and allowed us to have the upper hand most of the game.”
Ethan Williams scored 4 points and Karter Ratliff had 3. Matthew Glover and Jordan Walker scored 2 each.
Bethel led 5-2 after a quarter and it was 8-6 at the half. Going into the fourth, the Hornets’ advantage was 14-8.
