Junior forward Sara Gustafson (Reisterstown, Md.) equaled the school record for goals in a game with four, while sophomore midfielder Dana Jarzyniecki (Rochester, N.Y.) set the school record for assists in a game with three.

Junior forward Courtney Beirne (Westminster, Md.) scored the next two goals for her first-career multi-goal game to give the Terps a 3-0 lead at halftime. Jarzyniecki set up the second of Beirne's goals for the first of her three assists at the 21:51 mark.
Ludwig dented the scoreboard on a lob shot from seven yards out off a pass from pass from Kim King (Media, Pa.) just 4:59 into the second half. King came back for a goal of her own about five minutes later as she took a feed from Terri Greer (Woodbrige, Va.) to give the Terps a 5-0 lead.
Gustafson then took over, scoring the next three goals to give her a career high four goals, equalling the school record. The junior scored on an unassisted goal from 25 yards out at the 63:35 mark. She came back for a pair of goals assisted by Jarzyniecki at the 71:34 and 78:08 marks. Those two assists gave Jarzyniecki the school record, breaking the school record of two set numerous times.
Ludwig finished the scoring at the 79:47 mark on an unassisted goal.
