DRAIN — Days Creek scored three touchdowns in the second quarter —  the last one coming with three seconds left before halftime — and went on to defeat North Douglas 32-22 on Friday in a nonleague football game.

Gerritt Wentland passed for two touchdowns and returned an interception 72 yards for a score for the Wolves. Cade Martin caught an 84-yard scoring pass and Zane DeGroot added a 51-yard TD reception.

Austin Frieze caught a TD pass and ran for another for the Warriors. Tyler Kallinger ran for a score.

"We turned the ball over four times and gave up some big plays," N.D. coach JJ Mast said. "Their defense did a good job of making us earn everything we got. We didn't play smart, but played hard."

North Douglas will host Hosanna Christian next Friday in a nonleague contest. Days Creek travels to Prospect.
