The 1987-1988 soccer squad had its share of highs and lows.  Winning is always a high and losing is usually a low.  Other highlights of the season included the great friendships made as well as the camaraderie the team developed.

In conference play, the Tigers started the season against Southwest.  The game came down to the end where Southwest won 3-2.  Another close game was played against Washburn.  South gave up only one goal, unfortunately that is all the Millers needed to win the game. South lost their third straight game in a blow out against Roosevelt, 6-0.

The Tigers gained their first win of the season with a 6-0 win over North.  This was followed up with an 8-0 win over Henry. 

Southwest beat South for the second time during the season.  Also for the second time, Southwest won, 4-0.  Again, Washburn followed this game with a win, this time by a 5-0 score.

South gained a bit of revenge against Roosevelt, thumping the Teddies 5-0.  The conference season ended with a 2-2 tie against North and a 10-0 thrashing of Henry.

In non-conference games, South two closest games were against Minnehaha Academy.  Both games went into double overtime!  The first game saw the Tigers lose 2-1.  In the second game, the teams played to a 3-3 tie.

South won two other non-conference games.  In a close game, Mahtomedi fell 1-0.  The Tigers had an easier time with Edina, winning 4-0.  In the game against Woodbury, the two teams played to a scoreless tie.  South lost two other non-conference games.  Against Sibley, the Tigers lost 3-1.  South lost one other game 4-1, but the opponent is unknown.

The Tigers finished the season with a 4-5-1 conference record, good for third place.  Overall, the Tigers were 6-8-3.  South placed three players on the All-Conference squad Marta Fraboni, Mary Gustufson and Gwen Keller.  Wilford Schultz served as the head coach for his third season.  Rob Julien assisted Schultz.
