With the majority of the varsity team returning from last season, the expectations were high for the Tiger women.  Many of the seniors have been playing of the varsity team since they were sophomores.  Head Coach Lawrence Tsoi and his assistants, Jenny Kallas and Carmelle Hennagir, had the goal of making the State Tournament with this seasoned team.

The Tigers opened the season against Wayzata.  The Tigers dropped a close game 2-1.  Their records was evened when South shut out St. Paul Highland Park 5-0.  This game was followed by two more non-conference games.  The first was a 2-1 loss to Minnetonka.  Burnsville handed the Tigers a 4-1 loss.  The team whom everyone expected to be perfect was 1-3.

The Tigers took their frustrations out on their first conference opponent, Henry.  The Patriots were demolished 9-1.  Washburn was next.  The Millers played the Tigers tough, but in the end, South won 2-1.  Utter destruction reigned against Edison.  South seemed to score at will, racking up a 17-0 win.  Arch-rival Southwest was next on the schedule. The Tigers worked hard and won 2-0. 

South stepped out of the conference for their next game, against Waconia.  Waconia opened up hard against the Tigers, but in the end, South’s experience took over and the Tigers won 4-1.

Three of the next four games were against conference opponents.  Roosevelt was handed a 6-0 defeat.  Southwest played the Tigers very close, holding the Tigers to no goals!  However, the Lakers did not score and the game ended in a 0-0 tie.  A non-conference game was the battle of the Souths.  Lakeville South took on Minneapolis South.  Lakeville earned the victory, 3-1.  The last conference game of the season was a 1-0 victory over Washburn.

South finished the regular season with a non-conference game against Andover.  The Huskies and Tigers traded goals.  The game ended in a 3-3 tie.

South was one of the favorites in the Region 6AA Tournament.  In an upset, St. Louis Park beat the Tigers 2-1, ending South’s season.

South finished the conference season in first place with a 6-0-1 record.  Overall, the Tigers were 8-5-2.  Five players were named to the All-Conference squad: seniors Brenna BiMartino, Grace Lowry, Sade Odumuye and Rebekah Smith, and junior Carter Denison.
