POPLAR BLUFF, Mo. -- The Mineral Area softball team chipped away with two runs in the sixth inning and another in the seventh.

But a solid comeback attempt against Division I squad Three Rivers fell just short on Sunday, as the Lady Raiders prevailed 4-3 in game 1 of a softball doubleheader.

Tynai' Burrow paced Mineral Area by going 3-for-3, and shortstop Faith Eaves added a double and single with a run scored.

Lauren Stamp suffered a tough loss in the circle. The sophomore allowed nine hits in a complete game, striking out two batters while walking none.

Three Rivers took early command of game 2 with four runs in the opening inning and five more in the third, earning the sweep with a 14-6 triumph.

Mineral Area (16-13) cranked out 10 hits overall, highlighted by a 3-run homer as Burrow capped a strong afternoon at the plate.

Mikala Torrence and Darby Ferguson were each 2-for-4 with a double while Stamp had two singles for the Lady Cardinals. Alicia Otero scored two runs.
