For many schools around the area, this will be the final games of action before the holiday break.
It certainly will be the case for the Red Oak basketball teams as they look to go into the holiday break with some victories.
For the Red Oak girls basketball team, they'll look for their fifth straight win Friday night when they host the Clarinda Cardinals. Red Oak has won four straight, including Tuesday night versus Denison-Schleswig.
Clarinda has started the season 2-3, but is coming off a big win at home Tuesday night, 58-52, versus St. Albert.
