The Tigers opened the season expecting to win their eighth consecutive conference title.  This has been the norm for the Tiger program.  During Head Coach Amy Cardarelle’s five-year tenure, the Tigers have always won the conference crown. In fact, the Tigers have not lost a conference match the prior four seasons and only tied two! (Both against Southwest.)

The Tigers opened their conference season against Henry.  An easy win started the Tigers off on the right foot to defend their title.  No score was reported.  Another easy win came at the expense of the Polars from North.  A 7-0 final showed the Tigers were ready for the tougher part of the conference schedule

Roosevelt was the third conference foe to fall, this time by a much closer 3-0 score.  Arch-rival Southwest scored on the Tigers but also fell 6-2.  The closest game of the conference schedule was against Washburn.  The Millers held the Tigers to just one goal, but that one goal was enough for a Tiger win.  South finished the conference season with a 13-0 blowout of Edison.

South opened the season with a non-conference game against Edina.  The Hornets doubled up on the Tigers, winning 4-2.  Eden Prairie fell 5-1.  The closest game of the year was against Apple Valley.  Neither team scored, and the game ended in a 0-0 tie.

South then lost the next two non-conference games.  Bloomington Kennedy blanked the Tigers 2-0.  Burnsville won in a close 2-1 game.

South then prepared for the end of the season winning four non-conference games.  St. Paul Academy fell 4-2.  White Bear Lake was shut out 3-0.  Benilde-St. Margaret’s lost 4-1.  St. Paul Central was blanked 5-0.

The Tigers won their eighth consecutive conference title.  They had a 6-0 record, giving up only three goals in conference play.
