Injuries.  That was the result of the 1964-1965 football season at South.  Because of injuries, South was not as successful as they could have been.  Quarterback Ron Petrich missed the last five games because of a knee injury.  Seth Packard played in only four games because of a knee injury.  Stan LaBelle missed the last three game due to a knee injury.  Tackle, Bob Smythe, missed the whole season because of a concussion.

South opened the season against West.  The game was scoreless going into the fourth quarter.  A Statue of Liberty play resulted in the only scoring of the game.  West won 7-0.

Roosevelt used their passing game to pile up the points and blank the Tigers 39-0.

South won their only game of the season against Marshall.  The Cardinals committed six fumbles, three which were turned into South touchdowns.  Pat Perkins dove over the goal for the first touchdown.  Perkins also threw to Jerry Miller for a second score.  Ron Petrich connected with Stan LaBelle for the final score.  South won 19-6.

South’s next three games were Homecoming games.  The first saw the Tigers travel to Edison.  The Tommies won 13-0.  South then went to North for the Polars’ Homecoming.  The home team again blanked the Tigers, 27-0.  Then came South’s Homecoming.  The Tigers fought hard, but Vocational won 13-6.

South finished the season against Central then Henry.  Central took the game 21-12.  In a close game, Henry also won, 12-6. 

South finished the season with a 1-7 record, in ninth place, tied with Henry.  Only Marshall finished below the Tigers in the standings.

Head Coach Jim Haugen finished his second season leading the Tigers.  Dave Dillon, Bill McMoore, Mr. Pollune, and Maurice Webert were Haugen’s assistants.
