1895-1896 Season

Team Photo not Available

The second season of South football is one of mystery.  Only two scores have been found and there is no other information available at this time.

One of the games South played was against Central.  The team from the uptown area of Minneapolis handed the South squad a 12-0 loss.

The second game was against another Central squad. This time it was the St. Paul school.  St. Paul Central and out South squads battled fiercely, but neither team could score. South scored early in the second half, taking a 4-0 lead.  Central was threatening to score, but darkness was setting in. (These were the days before night games.)  Both teams agreed to end the game and call it a draw. The official final score was a 0-0 tie!
