The Airedales trailed by one, 12-11, after the first quarter, but quickly turned it around to command a 26-16 advantage heading into the break.
Alma held off Woodlawn in the second half to come away with the win.
“We played great as a team (Monday) night and got a quality win against a very good team,” said Alma coach Eddie Corder. “Our bench gave us a lot of quality play as well. It was a solid team effort.”
Corder cited the efforts of David Mullins, Keesler Nye and Drake Pendergraft, each who came off the bench to help the team.
Noah Dotson led the team with 19 points and Nathan Corder chipped in 16 and had five rebounds. Eli Howells “had one of his better games” and added eight points. Dotson also added five assists, and coach Corder said that Dotson “did a great job defending against their best player.”
