RITZVILLE - Running back Chris Steinmetz rushed for a touchdown and received another as Lind-Ritzville/Washtucna powered its way to a 12-0 victory over Dayton in a Class 2B football contest here Friday night.

Dayton's season ended at 5-4 with the defeat. The Broncos will join a field of 16 teams that begin play in the Class 2B state playoffs next weekend.

Steinmetz scored on a 9-yard run - set up by a Dayton fumble - with 8:31 left in the first quarter and hauled in a 6-yard touchdown toss from quarterback Dylan Hartz with 5:36 to go in the third quarter.

The Bulldogs managed just 134 yards of total offense and turned the ball over four times including three interceptions.

"Their line was pretty solid across the board and fast," Dayton coach Dean Bickelhaupt said. "They were beating us to the punch. We couldn't get anything going. They shut down our running game (27 carries, 50 yards). We couldn't generate much offense."

Hayden Fullerton ran 10 times for 49 yards to lead the Bulldogs. Isaiah Lambert led Dayton receivers with two receptions for 23 yards.
