After five year under the direction of Walt Butterwick, the Tigers have a new head coach.  Taking over the team is Jim Haugen, who served as an assistant coach for the last six seasons.

South opened the season against Central.  The Pioneers put on a great offensive and defensive show, shutting out the Tigers 26-0.

South scored first against North.  But fumbles and interceptions stopped the Tigers.  North was able to capitalize on the errors and won 13-6.

South was surprised by Vocational.  The Volts marched up and down the field and scored at will.  Vocational won 27-0.

South celebrated their Homecoming against Edison.  The two teams fought to a 0-0 tie for 46 minutes.  In the last two minutes, Edison scored and won 6-0, spoiling the Tigers’ Homecoming.

South again found itself in a hole playing Henry.  After going down 6-0, South fought to get to their 12 yard line.  Dave Miller, then took the ball on a double reverse and ran 88 yards for a touchdown to tie the game.  Miller scored one more touchdown and the Tigers won 13-6.

South took on Southwest.  It seemed as if this game would be another loss.  South had two touchdowns cancelled because of penalties.  A third score held and the Tigers won their second game of the season, 7-6.

On a two game winning streak, South took on Washburn.  South defense stopped the Miller rushing attack, but the passing game caused problems for the defense.  Washburn won 12-0.

In the last game of the season, West’s passing game took apart the Tiger defense.  West won 19-6.

The Tigers finished 2-6.  For the second year in a row, the team finished in ninth place.  Coach Haugen was assisted by Dave Dillon, Bill McMoore, Mr. Pollune, and Maurice Webert.
