OLD FORGE -- Daiqwon Buckley ran 56 yards for a second-quarter touchdown and Austin Seamon broke through to block an extra point in the third quarter Friday night as Dunmore edged Old Forge, 7-6, in the District 2 Class A football championship game.
Buckley and Seamon both were sidelined by injuries when Old Forge won the regular-season meeting, 21-0, to hand Dunmore its only loss.
The Bucks ruined the Blue Devils' unbeaten season in the rematch between two of the state's top four Class A teams, according to the Harrisburg Patriot-News poll.
Dunmore, which failed to produce a first down in the first half seven weeks ago, took a 7-0 halftime lead.
Joey Bruno's fumble recovery set up a 3-yard Brian Tomasetti touchdown with 9:34 left in the third quarter.
Seamon and Mike Kolcharno broke in from each side to keep the extra-point attempt from even reaching the line of scrimmage.
Mike Boland stopped a fourth-and-two Old Forge run with 1:17 left to clinch the win.
We knew we had to come out and play Dunmore football and be physical, said Boland, a 6-foot-5, 265-pound tackle, who also converted the deciding extra point.
