2006-2007 School Year

As a new season approached, the South football players were optimistic for a good season.  Many players gained experience last year and with that experience, the Tigers hoped to challenge the five-time defending champion Washburn Millers.

The Tigers were given the chance to knock the Millers off of their pedestal in the first game.  Washburn has become a juggernaut and continued their dominance over the Tigers and conference.  The Millers handed the Tigers their first loss of the season 34-14.

The Tigers knew they would bounce back against Southwest.  Southwest has not beaten the Tigers since the 1999-2000 school year and there was no reason to think that would change.  As the two teams took the field, no one told Southwest they were supposed to lose.  Southwest’s defense limited the Tigers to one score, while their offense put up the most points against the Tigers in a long time.  The Lakers won 35-8, and the Tigers were 0-2.

Against Henry, South defense had a hard time stopping the Patriot offense.  Fortunately, Henry’s defense could not stop South and the Tigers won 32-29.

South travelled to North for the Polars’ Homecoming.  This close game saw the Tigers send the Polar fans home dejected with a 20-18 loss.

Roosevelt was next up and the Tigers continued winning, pushing aside the Teddies 24-16.

South played their best game of the season against Edison.  The Tommies were shut out 29-0.

In the Twin City Crossover game, South came crashing back to reality with a 56-24 loss to St. Paul Como Park.

The Tigers played St. Paul Central in the first Region game and won 32-20. Results of their second game were not reported.

Despite the poor start, South finished the conference season 4-2, tied with Henry for second place.  Overall, the Tigers were 5-3.

Head Coach Lenny Sedlock finished his sixth season as the Tiger leader.
