A change in formation resulted in a tournament victory for the Crestwood girls soccer team.
In switching to an attacking 4-3-3 formation, the Red Devils played fast and aggressive en route to a 3-0 Kent Division II sectional victory over Streetsboro on Monday evening.
The victory marked the fourth game in seven days for Crestwood (8-4-5 overall), but the Red Devils did not seem devoid of energy, scoring in just the ninth minute of regulation.
Crestwood captain Stacey Larch dribbled the ball down the left side of the Rockets' box before firing a crossing pass that teammate Lindsay Thut was able to slip past Streetsboro senior keeper Marra Woods for the night's first score.
Rather than taking the foot off of the pedal, Crestwood rode its early momentum as the Red Devils attacked and pressured Streetsboro's defenders all evening.
The Red Devils finished the game with 16 shots on goal, compared to just three attempts for Streetsboro.
Much of regulation was played in Streetsboro territory as Crestwood tested Woods' ability in net early and often.
In her final game for the Rockets, Woods -- one of the top keepers in the PTC -- finished with 13 saves.
Crestwood added a pair of goals in the second half as sophomore Melissa Soltisz and junior captain Makenna Delgado each scored to ensure the Red Devils would move on in the postseason.
Streetsboro finished 4-12-1.
