Joseph A. Kjelland returned to the helm of the South Football team.  The team hoped to win the City title this season, but it would not happen this year.

South opened against their Alumni and won by a 7-0 score.  The hard practices South had prior to the game help propel them to the victory.

The 5-0 win against St. Paul Central gave Coach Kjelland a good image of the quality of play the team was capable of.

South played Central again in their next game.  This Central was from Minneapolis though.  Central showed their power and strength shutting out South 17.0

Defending champion West also played a strong defensive game and shut out South 12-0.

The best game of the season may have been played against North. The weather was perfect for a November day.  The crowd was enthusiastic.  North started the game as the favorites because of the “Beef Trust,” the nickname given to their line because of the size of the players.  South was not intimidated though.  The final score was 6-6.

South finished the season with a win in their last game against East.  South played perfect defense shutting out East 22-0.

South finished the season with a 3-2-1 overall record.  They were 1-2-1 in the City, good for third place.  Three players were recognized by the Minneapolis Tribune to the All-City team.  Gulden was named to the first team while Low and Sanborn were named to the second squad.
