After last season’s disappointment, the Tigers had something to prove.  Coach Roger Sandau expected the team to eliminate the mistakes made last season and improve greatly in the standing.

South opened the season with a non-conference game against Delano.  The Tigers 3-0 win gave them a positive to build the rest of the season on.

South opened the conference season against North.  The Polars played hard and eked out a 2-1 win.

South evened their record against Henry.  The Patriots played hard, but the Tigers edged them 2-1.

South played two schools from the St. Cloud Area. St. Cloud Tech fell 2-0.  St. John’s Prep also lost 2-1.

South returned to the conference wars against Roosevelt and Washburn.  The Tigers fell to both teams by identical 3-1 scores.

South lost their first non-conference game of the season when they fell to Minnehaha Academy 2-0.

South finished the first half of the conference season against Edison and Southwest.  The Tommies fell 4-0.  Southwest won 3-0.  The Tigers were 2-4 in Minneapolis at the end of the first half.

In the second half of the season, the Tigers were almost unbeatable in the conference.  South handed the Polars a 3-2 loss.  That was followed by a 4-1 win over Henry.

Roosevelt was shocked when the Tigers tied the Teddies 1-1. 

The only conference loss of the second half was to perennial powerhouse Washburn, 5-0.

South ended the conference season with a 4-0 win over Edison and a 1-0 win over Southwest.

The regular season ended with a non-conference loss to Blaine, 3-0.

South ended the season with a 6-5-1 conference record, good for third place.  Overall the Tigers were 9-7-1.  Also, the Tigers were named the Academic All-State team.  That is the team with the highest Grade Point Average in the State.
