Carl Charlie knocked down a season-high eight three-pointers and helped power the Warriors to a startling 71-38 romp over the Bristol Bay Angels in a non-conference showdown. As a team, Bethel pumped in three-point shots in the contest.

Bristol Bay used the three-pointer to hold its own against BRHS in the first eight minutes. The Angels knocked down three treys in the stanza and fought its way to a 13-13 deadlock.

Jayvin Williams and James Flemings provided the offensive firepower for the Warriors in the opening frame. Williams pushed in seven of his 16 points in the frame. Flemings and Clevon Constantine added four and two, respectively.

Charlie took all of the air out of the Angels’ sails in the second. He buried five three-pointers in the second and spearheaded a staggering 29-14 run that sent Bethel into the half holding a 42-27 cushion.

Williams also knocked down a three-pointer in the frame.

The news got even better for the Warriors in the third. Bethel all but salted away the victory by reeling off a staggering 24-7 run in the first eight minutes of the second half.

Charlie highlighted a list of seven BRHS players to score in the third by sinking three treys. Avery Hoffman added a three-pointer, while Robert Michael chipped in a pair of shots from the paint. Charlie, Williams, Gareth Rice, John Fredericks and Constantine all added shots from the field as well.
