Returning to the top of the standing was the goal of the 2000-2001 South Soccer squad,  With a good mix of returning players and newcomers, Head Coach Jeremy Fisher began his fifth season with confidence of a successful season.

South opened the conference season playing Southwest.  The Tigers and Lakers have played some close games in recent years.  This was no different.  South won 3-1.

The Tigers had a bit of an easier time with North.  The Tigers won 5-0.  This set up the next game with Edison.  South has traditionally dominated the Tommies but in recent years, Edison has played the Tigers very close.  This game was so close that no one won.  The game ended in a 1-1 tie.

The game against Edison would be the lone blip during the conference season.  Henry, 5-1, Washburn, 3-1, and Roosevelt, 4-0, all fell, giving the Tigers a 5-0-1 record after the first half.

The Tigers began the second round with a win over Southwest.  Unfortunately, the score was not reported.  South also defeated North, 7-1. The Tigers gained a bit of revenge for the tie when they played Edison and won 2-0.

Henry, 6-0, Roosevelt, 2-1, and Washburn, 1-0, all fell, giving the conference title to the Tigers with an 11-0-1 record.

In non-conference games, the Tigers were very successful.  South won five games and had one tie.  South defeated Robbinsdale Armstrong 4-0.  That was followed by a 1-0 win over Apple Valley.  Tartan fell 2-0.  Bloomington Kennedy lost 2-1.  The only non-win was a 1-1 tie with Eastview.  South beat Forest Lake 3-0 to end the non-conference season.

Scores in the Region Tournament were not reported, but it can be assumed that South lost one game since they did not advance to the State Tournament.

Overall, the Tigers were 16-0-2.
