With the team being the defending co-champions, the Tigers had a target on their back. Everyone wanted to topple the champs.

South opened the season with a convincing win against Roosevelt.  The Tigers played a great defense and shut out the Teddies 27-0. 

The next game was a non-conference game against Faribault.  In overtime, Faribault pulled out the game 20-18.

South returned home to face Henry for Homecoming.  The Patriots were putty in the hand of the Tigers.  South sent the fans home ecstatic with a 41-6 thumping of Henry.

Against North, South played its closest conference game of the year.  North held the Tiger offense down, but South scored enough to take a 19-8 win.

The highest scoring game of the year was played against Edison.  The Tigers gave up a season high 38 points.  Fortunately, the offense scored more and the Tigers won 48-38.

South finished the conference season against Washburn.  This game was similar to last seasons’ finale, however the shoes were on the other foot.  This year, South was undefeated and Washburn had only one loss.  (Last season South had the loss and Washburn was undefeated).  Would Washburn pull off the upset and tie South for the title?  South started off on the right foot and kept going.  South won 21-7, claimed sole possession of the title and finished with a 6-0 record in conference.

South represented Minneapolis in the Twin City game against Cretin-Derham Hall.  South did better than in last season’s game, but the Tigers lost again, 28-14.

When Region play began, South took on Southwest in the first game.  The Lakers were not match for the Tigers.  South advanced with a 39-0 win.  In the Region semi-finals, South’s season came to an end with a 37-0 loss to Richfield.

Overall, the Tigers were 7-3. 

Head Coach Al Howard, in his fifth season as the Tiger leader, was assisted by S. Bakkion, T. Barte, Steve, Haney, C. King, Jay Roland, Tony Stewart, and Mike Wurzer.
