South has a tradition of success.  For the last four years, and five of the last six years, the Tigers advanced to the State Tournament.  Head Coach Jeremy Fisher knew that every year it becomes tougher and tougher to be successful. 

South opened the conference season as they have in recent years, with a win.  A 4-0 victory over Edison placed the Tigers on a pace to challenge for the conference title. 

That was followed by a 3-1 win over Washburn.  The Millers gave competition, but fell in the end.

A battle between the last two conference champions took place on September 12 when South faced Southwest.  In a close game, the Lakes pulled it out 1-0.

South finished the first half with three more wins, defeating Roosevelt, 1-0, North, 12-0, and Edison, 3-0.

Two wins started the second half when South defeated Washburn 2-1 and Henry 3-0.

South faced Southwest for the second time.  The Tigers were one game behind the Lakers.  A South win would place them in a tie with Southwest for the conference lead.  At the end of the game, Southwest pulled off a 2-1 win. 

South played Roosevelt next.  Both teams had two losses.  The game was for second place.  Roosevelt came away with a slim 1-0 victory.

South finished the conference season beating North 7-0, and Henry 10-0.

In non-conference games, South lost four.  Bloomington Jefferson was the first to beat the Tigers, 2-0.  That was followed by a 2-1 loss to Hudson, WI.  Apple Valley won 1-0.  St. Paul Academy won 2-0.

In the Region tournament, Southwest beat South for the third time this season.  In a close game, the Tigers lost 3-2.

South finished 9-3 in the conference, in third place behind Southwest and Roosevelt.
