Back Mountain high school football rivals will meet when Dallas travels to Lake-Lehman on Friday, Oct.31 for the Old Shoe Game.
In addition to settling bragging rights in the rivalry, the game could also determine the playoff fate for one or both teams.
Dallas went into the ninth weekend of the season with a 4-4 record and in fifth place in the race for four District 2 Class AAA playoff berths.
Lake-Lehman, the defending Class AA champion, was 5-3 and in third place in the race for four district berths. The third- through eighth-place teams in the playoff standings all entered the next-to-last weekend of the regular season with 5-3 or 4-4 records.
Lake-Lehman won just the second time in the last 13 meetings when it took last year’s game, 48-41.
