The best information I can find in researching your problem with this invasive plant is to use a selective herbicide and treat and retreat.
Many people recommend pulling up as much as you can be hand, then treat the areas with herbicide.
Some advice I found said to use a thatcher on the lawn, rake up and dispose of all the material removed by thatching and then treat with herbicide.
I would suggest talking with your County Extension Office. They may have recommendations on a specific herbicide that works in your region.
