The LaSalle Lancers will move on to the Division II Championship game after a 35-0 win over Anthony Wayne Friday night.

Tre’Sean Smith and the La Salle defense completely dominated Wayne, limiting them to just 24 rushing yards in the first half and 71 on total offense.

Smith, the senior safety-running back, had three rushing touchdowns in the game, including the first scoring play on a one-yard run up the gut.

Jarell White also played well: He gained 149 yards and scored a touchdown on 15 carries for the Lancers.

La Salle, the two-time defending Division II state champion, will go for a three-peat against Massillon Perry at Ohio State next Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Their face-off will be a rematch of last year’s title game, which La Salle won 42-0.

La Salle has won its last three playoff games by a margin of 114-20. The Lancers have won 14 playoff games in a row over the past three years.
