LOWELL — The Days Creek softball team split a Special District 3 doubleheader at Lowell on Friday afternoon. 

The Wolves (2-8, 1-5 SD3) won the first game 4-3 in an abbreviated contest, only going five innings as both teams were short-handed and agreed to shorten both games to five innings. Freshman Shandiin Newton got the win for Days Creek in the opener. 

Lowell (4-7, 4-3) took the second game 9-6 behind the bat of Dayce Riberal, who had a pair of doubles to go along with a home run and never failed to reach base in the game. 

Days Creek will host Oakridge in a doubleheader on Saturday.
