The final Friday before the Christmas break brings a full slate of area sports tonight.

The West Delaware Bowling teams will return to play hosting Cascade at Lightning Lanes in Manchester starting at 4pm. The Hawk boys will enter play with a 3-2 record while the girls are 5-0.

Our featured basketball game of the night is the West Delaware Boys hosting Mount Vernon in a WaMaC conference East division contest. The Hawks are 4-1 overall and 2-1 on the East side, Mt. Vernon is 2-3 and 1-2. The Hawks are coming off of their first loss of the season Tuesday night in Maquoketa. Hawks head coach Matt Uthoff knows his team has what it takes to compete in the division and realizes it is a long journey but they will have to improve and be able to execute each night out:
