In the 2003-2004 soccer season, the Tigers finally were knocked off of their perch on top of the conference standings.  After winning 11 consecutive titles, South finished the season in second place, behind arch-rival Southwest. 

The conference season opened like the past 11 have, with a Tiger win. South beat North, but the score was not reported.  Henry fell next, 8-0.  Likewise, Edison lost, but again the score was not reported.  Roosevelt and Washburn both fell, 13-0 and 6-0, respectively.

This set up a match between the Tigers and Lakers.  Both teams were undefeated.  The winner would temporarily claim first place.  Southwest managed only one goal, but that is all that was needed.  The Lakers won 1-0.  However, South would have a chance at redemption three days later.  The Tigers and Lakers faced off again.  South’s streak was in jeopardy.  A win, and the teams would tie for first place.  A loss, and the Lakers would claim the crown.  The Laker defense shut down the Tigers, while the offense managed goals.  The final, 2-0. 

South finished the conference season with a win over Washburn.  The score was not reported. 

The only non-conference match reported was a 1-0 win over Southwest.

In the region, Southwest beat the Tigers for the third time this season.  South’s season ended with a 4-2 loss.

Head Coach Amy Cardarelle finished her ninth season at the helm of the Tiger program.
