Dallas defensive tackles Logan Bullock and Buddy Shutlock led a defense that held Lake-Lehman to minus 17 yards on 31 carries as Dallas posted a 51-06 victory to clinch the final District 2 Class 3A spot and earn the right to take the coveted Old Shoe trophy back to Mountaineer territory.
Dallas was scheduled to play at Berwick (9-1) in the D2-3A semifinals on Saturday.
The Mountaineers won their seventh consecutive game and were kept alive for a district spot when Coughlin defeated Crestwood.
Dallas let Bullcok a 6-foot, 260-pound senior, cap the scoring with a 1-yard touchdown run late inn the fourth quarter. He finished with two carries for 5 yards, leaving running back Kris Roccograndi (117 yards, 2 TDs) firmly entrenched in the starter's role.
Shutlock came close to an interception in the second quarter when Jason Simonovich tipped a past at the line of scrimmage. The 6-4, 260-pound senior finished about a step short of hauling in the deflection.
Bullock hammered Lehman 1,000-yard running back Dustin Jones for a 1-yard gain the first time Lehman had the ball. On Lehman's next two possessions, Shutlock startled them with tackles for minus 2 yards and no gain.
Dallas quarterback Ryan Zapoticky, who had over 1,300 passing yards entering the game, threw only seven times. His only TD pass was a 6-yarder to Simonovich to make the score 36-6.
