Entering the season, the target on South’s back was bigger than last season.  Coming off of the most successful season in recent years, South was out to defend their title.  This would be a challenge because South returned only two seniors. Going into the season, South had won 11 consecutive conference games. 

South took on their old nemesis Roosevelt in the first game of the season.  This close game saw South win 10-8 and extend their conference winning streak to 12 games.

South stepped out of the conference and played Faribault.  Faribault handed South their first loss of the season, 29-6.

South returned to the conference schedule to face Henry.  South pushed forward and won 20-6, extending the winning streak to 13 games in the conference.

When South took on North in the next game, both teams were undefeated.  North hoped for a good game in order to defeat the Tigers.  They played more than a good game, it was excellent, with the Polars taking to contest 30-6, snapping the Tigers conference winning streak.

The following week, South travelled to Edison to be the Tommies Homecoming foe.  South hoped to bounce back, but the enthusiastic fans helped propel the Tommies to a 13-0 win.

South returned home to take on the Lakers for South’s Homecoming.  Southwest was completely outplayed.  The Tigers won 45-0 and sent their fans and alumni home happy.

South finished the conference season against Washburn.  Unlike the last two seasons, this game was not for first place.  Washburn reversed the results of the last two seasons and won 34-7.

South finished the regular season against St. Paul Highland Park in the Twin City Crossover game.  Highland Park took advantage of the many South mistakes and won 48-5.

The Region tournament began the following week. South played a return game with Washburn.  The results were the same as the first meeting with Washburn winning 17-0.

South finished the season with a 3-3 conference record, tied with Henry and Washburn for third place.  Overall, the Tigers were 3-6.

South was against led by Al Howard.  S. Bakkion, L. Bryant, Jay Roland, and Tony Stewart assisted him.
