Trailing vine in grass; anyone know what it is?

Hi. There's a flat, vine-like weed popping up all over our front lawn. (It was originally in cracks in our neighbour's driveway and moved into our property.) It does not flower. Can anyone identify it from the photos below?

I've been digging it up where I see it, but I don't really get a full root. I get more like a single white root. That makes me think that there's a network of runners under the grass and that the plants I see are attached to those runners.

If you do know what this is, any tips on getting rid of it or controlling it would be great. I live in an area with fairly strong pesticide/herbicide restrictions and I prefer the organic route anyway.

Thanks in advance.
