2006-2007 School Year

After making it to the State Tournament last season and finishing third, the goal was to go all the way and win the State Title.  Players felt confident they could repeat last season’s success. A lot was expected from the team, who was ranked #1 in Minesota, #3 in the Midwest Region and #20 in the Nation during the season! Head Coach Carl Craig and his staff had a lot to live up to.

South opened the season with the Twin City crossover game.  For the first time, the winners of the conference titles would not play in a Twin City Championship game at the end of the season.  Instead, there would be a crossover game at the beginning of the season where the Minneapolis teams would face off against the St. Paul schools based on last season’s final conference standings.  South took on defending St. Paul Champion Como Park.  Como Park was no match for the Tigers who won an easy 5-0 game.

South opened the conference season against what everyone expected to be a tough Washburn team.  The Millers folded under the pressure and the Tigers won 11-0.  This was followed by an even worst score, with South defeating North 16-1.  Southwest gave the Tigers all they could handle, but South again won, 3-0.

Henry and Roosevelt were both shut out.  The Patriots lost 13-0, while the Teddies fell 6-1.  The first half ended with an 8-1 victory over Edison.

South opened the second half with another win over Washburn.  The Millers played harder, but still fell in the end 5-0.  South then beat North.  The final score was not reported. The game with Henry was total annihilation.  For the second year in a row, and the third time in the last four game the two teams played, South set a team record for most goals in a game.  The lopsided final was 20-0!

South played Southwest in the second Super Soccer Saturday of the year.  The Lakers were up for the game. By the way Southwest played, you would have guessed the game was for the State championship.  South played an excellent game as well, but a blemish occurred on their record.  The perfect season fell as the two teams tied, 2-2!

South finished the conference season with a 6-0 win over Edison and an 11-0 defeat of Roosevelt.

In non-conference games, South beat both Robbinsdale Armstrong and Apple Valley.  The scores of both games were not reported.

South earned the #1 seed in the Region Tournament.  They won their first game.  In the second rounds, they faced a tough Edina squad.  The Hornets put a sting on the Tigers and handed South their only loss of the season.

Overall, the Tigers were 11-0-1 in the Minneapolis Conference finishing first.  Overall, the Tigers were 15-1-1.
