Locals lead Highlanders to the top

"They have a lot of ties including one against Ottawa, who is the team we're battling with for first place," said Zwicklbauer of Westchester, which came into Saturday's game with a 1-4-4 record. "We certainly put all the pressure on them. It was an unfortunate result, but that's the way the game works sometimes."

Last weekend also marked the last time the Highlanders would be home this season. They conclude the regular season with five consecutive road games, starting with Friday's trip to New Hampshire.

"Unfortunately, this is a part of minor league ball," said Zwicklbauer. "If we can get out of this [stretch] with three wins and a tie, I think we'll make the playoffs.""
