With a new season comes new hopes for success.  Jillian Stockmo returned for her second year as head coach.  The players were now familiar with her style of coaching and ready for a successful season.

South opened with two non-conference games.  The first was against Cristo Rey Jesuit school.  The Tigers stormed to a 5-1 win.  In the second game, against St. Agnes, the Tigers limited St. Agnes to one goal, but only managed one themselves and the game ended in a tie.

The conference season opened against Wellstone.  The Lions were tamed to an 8-0 South victory.  Long-time rival Southwest was next.  The Laker won 6-0.  A 5-0 win over Roosevelt gave the Tigers a 2-1 conference record, with hopes of contending for the title.

Two losses to non-conference opponents hurt the Tigers emotionally.  St. Louis Park won 4-0.  Richfield eked out a 2-1 win.

Returning to conference play after these two losses, South realized they had to win to remain in contention for the conference title.  Their hopes were dashed when Washburn baked the Tigers 9-0.  Southwest followed with a 6-1 beating of the Tigers. 

Minnehaha Academy beat the Tigers in the last non-conference game 5-0.  In the last regular season game, and last conference game, South beat Edison 8-0.  Due to weather and a lack of a common open date, the game against Henry was cancelled and not made up.

In the Region 6AA tournament, South again faced Wayzata and was eliminated from competition in the first round.  The final score was 13-0.

The Tigers ended with a 3-3 record, tied with Roosevelt for third place.  Overall South was 4-7-1.  Three players were named to the All-Conference team: seniors Emily Currie and Grace Larson, and junior Emma Schluter. 

Isaiah Tyree was the assistant coach.
