WARREN, NJ - With a four-run deficit going into the sixth inning, the Lady Highlanders' comeback surge was was not enough to get past the undefeated Watchung Hills Warriors, losing, 7-4, on Saturday.

The score is not reflective of the standout fielding of the Lady Highlanders as they snared line drives and made crucial plays to hold the Warriors, No. 10 in The Star-Ledger/NJ.com Top 20, from building a bigger lead.

In the bottom of the fifth, Gov. Livingston trailed, 5-1.  The bats came alive at the top of the sixth as they chipped away at the Warriors' lead.  Three runs scored off multiple hits and a home run brought the Lady Highlanders within one.
