SULLIVAN -- Facing Central A&M for a third time this season, Warrensburg-Latham coach Vic Binkley knew he'd have to change it up.
So the Cardinals flipped the script on the defensive side of the ball, and that helped push them to a 56-41 win in the CIC consolation final on Wednesday.
"We're really pleased to beat a very good Central A&M team. Three times, that's hard to do," Binkley said. "But we really came out and we changed some defense a little bit and held them to one field goal in the first half and that kind of set the tone right there."
