As a hot summer comes to an end, the athletic teams begin preparing for a new school year and a new season.  Football is no difference.  Beginning in the middle of August, the young men who desired to play football came to learn the game and improve their skills under Head Coach Al Howard and his assistants, Steve Haney, Jay Roland and Mike Wurzer.

For the first time in history, South opened their season in August.  South and Washburn clashed on August 31.  The Tigers and Millers worked hard, but in the end, Washburn won 19-6.

South and Henry clashed the following week.  The Patriots gave the Tigers a good fight. South won their first game of the season 23-14.

South stepped out of the conference and took on Minnetonka.  South was no match for the suburban school who won 35-0.

Homecoming was next on South’s agenda.  The opponent was Southwest.  Southwest recovered a fumble and scored taking an 8-0 lead.  In the second quarter, South attempted a punt deep in their own territory.  The snap sailed over punter Scott Colbert’s head and out of the end zone for a safety.  Southwest led 10-0.  That was all the scoring.  South fans went home dejected.

South played North in a one-sided game.  The Polars racked up a 21-9 win.

South travelled to Edison to be the Tommies Homecoming opponent.  Edison showed why they won the conference title, running up a 49-0 score.

Roosevelt was next up and the next team to defeat the Tigers.  South lost 27-3.

South finished the regular season against St. Paul Humboldt.  South managed two touchdown but Humboldt more than doubled South’s score, 35-12.

South played Washburn in the Region 5AA playoffs.  Washburn won 35-12 and the Tigers season was over.

The Tigers finished 1-5 in the conference, tied for last place with Southwest.  Overall the team was 1-7.  Ben Malmanger and Chris Wexler were named to the All-Conference squad.
