Kicker Cup Update – Texarkana City Championship – Week 7
The quest for the Kicker Cup continues and after week Seven is done the quest is nearing the end. Mathematically speaking, Texas High and Arkansas High are still in the running, LE, however, is out.
Liberty Eylau has four games left and can still win their district and make the playoffs, but they don't have enough games left to have a shot at the Kicker Cup.
Texas High can still do it, at 3-4 they still have three games left to play, and with some help from PG they could still win the Cup.
Arkansas High is 3-2 with four games remaining on their schedule, so again with a little help, they are still in the running as well.
Of course, the Kicker Cup is great one to put in the trophy case, but we know and recognise the most important thing is for our local teams to win as much in District competition as they can so they can make the playoffs and go as far as they can go. We wish them all lots of luck and good health heading toward the third part of the season.

History of the Kicker Cup:
For the last 22 years, Kicker 102.5 along with Red River Credit Union have partnered to bring you the huge travelling trophy known as the Kicker Cup to our local Texarkana high schools. As we enter year 23 the winner, as always, is determined by which team has the best overall winning record at the end of the regular football season.
The trophy will be presented during a pep rally at the end of the regular season to the local Texarkana team that has the best regular-season record. Who will it be for 2019? Check back here each week to see the updates!
