The 2010-2011 season opened with a more-experienced squad than the team that opened last season.  Thirteen players who are now juniors gained valuable experience.  Second-year Head Coach Lawrence Tsoi also knew more about his players and their ability.

South opened the season with three non-conference games.  The first was against Wayzata and the Tigers fell 3-0.  The result against Minnetonka was the same 3-0 loss.  The third game, against Burnsville, also resulted in a loss, 1-0.  The tough opening could have sent the team spiraling downward, but they kept their heads high and continued to work

The Tigers opened their conference season with a game against Edison.  The Tommies were no match for South.  The Tigers gained their first win, 13-0.

South played another non-conference game facing St. Paul Highland Park.  The 5-0 win gave the team confidence that their hard work was not in vain.

Three non-conference games followed.  The first one may have been the most important.  Their foe was arch-nemesis Southwest.  The Lakers pushed the Tigers, but South came out on top 2-0, getting the team to a .500 record.  Roosevelt, 6-0, and Henry, 5-0, both fell to the Tigers.

Two more non-conference game saw the Tigers winning streak end at five.  The amazing thing is that both games were 0-0 ties!  The opponents were Holy Angels and Lakeville South.

South played three more conference games.  Washburn was beaten 2-0. North was slaughtered 13-0.  Then came the second game with Southwest.  The Tigers did not let up and won 3-0.

The Tigers defeated Minnehaha Academy 1-0.  In the last conference game, Washburn and the Tigers tied 0-0.  The last game of the regular season was a 3-1 win over Robbinsdale Cooper. 

The Tigers pulled a tough draw in the first round of the Region 6AA in Hopkins.  In an exciting game, the Royals ended Tigers season with a 2-1 win.

The Tigers finished 7-0-1 in the Minneapolis City Conference, good for first place. This was the 17th time the Tigers won the conference championship. Overall, the team was 10-4-3.

Coach Tsoi was assisted by Andrea Carrol-Franck, Carmelle Hennagir and Jenny Kallas.
