Chloe Trusty scored 13 of her game-high 18 points in the first half Tuesday to power Alma to a 50-23 win over the Lamar Lady Warriors. 
Alma (5-4) never trailed while posting its fifth victory in eight games. 
Presli Taylor's 3-point basket gave Alma a 9-4 lead after one-quarter of play. 
Trusty then took over in the second quarter, scoring nine points in the final 6:42 to help the Lady Airedales build a 20-8 halftime lead. Alma put the game away by scoring 10 points in the final two minutes of the third quarter for a 34-13 advantage. 
Loryn Kelley had 16 points for Alma and Halyn Carmack finished with nine. 
Alma 50, Lamar 49 
BOYS  Drew Battles continues to come up clutch for Stan Flenor's Airedales. 
The Alma senior buried a 3-pointer with 1:06 left to play and the Airedales held on for a gritty 50-49 win over Lamar Tuesday night in the final non-conference home tilt at Charles B. Dyer Arena. 
Down four (34-30) in the second half, Battles' four-point play sparked a 10-0 run. 
But Lamar (4-2) responded with a 14-3 burst to claim a 48-43 lead before Alma rallied one final time. 
Nathan Whalen tallied 14 points and Hunter McAlister contributed nine points. Alma held Lamar to just 5-of-25 shooting from the 3-point line.
