South hoped to get back to the top of the standings with the start of a new season.  South finished third last season, an unfamiliar place in recent seasons for the Tigers.  Head Coach Jeremy Fisher hoped to bring the Tigers to the top again.

South opened the conference season against North with a convincing 10-0 win.  South completely outplayed the Polars. 

The Tigers faced the Teddies in the next game.  Roosevelt lost 3-1. 

The next two games ended with the exact same scores.  The opponents were Henry and Washburn.  South added two more wins by 4-0 scores.

Edison was the next victim on the Tigers’ schedule.  Unfortunately, no one told the Tommies they were supposed to be the next victim.  South was upset 2-0, losing their first conference game of the season.

Southwest was the next opponent.  The Lakers won 2-1, giving the Tigers back to back conference losses.

South attacked the second half of the of the season with a 6-0 win against North.  This was followed by wins over Roosevelt, 2-1, Henry, 8-2, and Washburn, 4-0.

South was looking for revenge with the last two games of the conference season against the two teams who beat them, Edison and Southwest.  Edison scored two goals and another loss looked like it was on the hook for another loss.  South though won 3-2.  Against Southwest, both team fought to a 0-0 tie through most of the game.  South scored and won 1-0.

In non-conference games, South defeated Minnehaha Academy 5-0.  The Tigers lost to Apple Valley, 1-0, Elk River, 2-0, Hopkins, 2-0, and Fargo South, 4-1.

South finished with a 10-2 conference record, one game behind Southwest.  Overall the team was 11-6. 

Coach Fisher was assisted by Ian McRoberts, Brent LaSalle and Gordon Olson.
