History was made Thursday night at Ohio Stadium as La Salle, ranked #30 in the High School Football America National Top 50, beat Massillon Perry 14-7 for the school’s third straight Division II state championship. It’s the first time ever, that a Division II team has three-peated.

La Salle (13-2), which beat Perry 42-0 in last year’s championship game, trailed 7-0 at half. Louisville-commit TreSean Smith tied the game at 7-7 in the third quarter on a three yard TD run. Then with 3:46 to go in the game, Smith scored on a 12-yard TD run that turned-out to be the game-winner.
The La Salle defense held Perry (12-3) to 168 yards in total offense.
