As with any football season, players, coaches and fans hope to have a winning season.  South has been mired for a number of season as a average team, beating teams worse than them, but losing to the better teams.  Would this continue?

South opened the season against Rochester John Marshall.  As in the past few seasons, the Comets easily handled the Tigers 38-18.

South moved to conference competition against Roosevelt.  The Teddies were handled easily by the Tigers 36-20.

The Tommies of Edison were next on the plate for the Tigers.  As with recent history, South won easily 44-6.

Next up was Washburn, who has won the conference title for nine straight seasons.  They have not lost a conference game since the 2002-2003 season.  During this time, Washburn is 55-1 (including two wins earlier this year)!  As the game wore on, the Tigers and their games hoped for the upset.  When the final horn sounded, South did the impossible, the defeated Washburn 24-20!  They were now 3-0 and tied with Southwest for the conference lead.

Speaking of Southwest, the Lakers were the Tigers next opponent.  To add to the excitement of the game, it was also the Tigers homecoming!  The Lakers spoiled the fun and sent the Tiger fans home disappointed, 56-22.  The Tigers were now 3-1, tied for second place.

South handled the Patriots from Henry easily 28-12.

The last game of the season pitted South against North.  At the same time, Washburn was taking on Southwest.  South needed a win and a Washburn win to claim a share of first place.  In a high scoring game, the Tigers won 38-26.  Now they had to wait to hear the score of the Washburn-Southwest game.  Southwest was the favorite, having scored over 35 points in each of their conference games.  When the news came, the Tigers cheered!  Washburn pulled off the upset winning 33-25. The Tigers shared the conference championship.

St. Paul City Conference was down to six teams with the closure of Artlington, so South chose not to play in the Twin City Crossover game.  Instead the Tigers played Robbinsdale Cooper. The Hawks destroyed the Tigers 43-6.

In the Region tournament, Woodbury again ended the Tigers season 42-0.

The Tigers ended the conference season with a 5-1 record tied for the championship with Southwest and Washburn.  It was the Miller’s 10th consecutive title.  Overall, the Tigers were 5-4.  This was Head Coach Lenny Sedlock’s 10th season as the Tiger leader.
