For players and teams, every football season is one of ups and downs.  You may win, you may lose.  Players become injured.  Some of those injuries are minor, such as a cut or bruise.  Some are major such as broken bones or concussions.  South experienced all of these during this season and Head Coach Lenny Sedlock and his staff were not new to these problems.

The Tigers opened against non-conference opponent Holy Family Catholic.  The Tigers were not up to par and fell 28-7.

South took on Roosevelt in the first conference game.  The Tigers took the stuffing completely out of the Teddies winning 34-0.

Henry was the next to feel the wrath of the Tigers.  Henry managed a score, but South won 33-6.

South Homecoming may have been the most impressive game in school history. Against Edison, place kicker Matt Ostrow set a school record, and came within two of the State record for extra points made in a game.  His 10 extra points is second only to Ryan Rambacher of Hastings, who set the mark in 1998.  The Tommies were no match for the Tigers, losing 76-0!  The 76 points scored is a Tiger record for most points scored in a game.

South, 3-0 in conference, was tied with Washburn going into the game against the Millers.  Washburn, with their seven consecutive championships, was not going to be a push over.  The Millers dashed the Tigers hope winning 45-0. 

The Tigers tried to bounce back against North.  In a close game, the Polars pulled out the win 22-17.

South finished the conference season in a disappointing game against Southwest.  The Lakers mounted the Tigers on their wall, winning 53-0.

South took on St. Paul Highland Park in the Twin City Crossover game.  In a very close game, the foot of Matt Ostrow was the differene, with the Tigers winning 13-12.

In the Region tournament, South faced Henry Sibley.  The Tiger season ended with a 54-24 loss.

South finished the season with a 3-3 conference record, in a three-way tie with North and Roosevelt for third place.  Overall, the Tigers were 4-5.
