Three defensive schemes in three games didn’t faze the No. 1 Terps.
Midfielder Zoe Stukenberg paced the team with five scores.
“We’ve already seen these guys in the preseason step up and rise up to the challenge,” coach Cathy Reese said.
Steele notched four first-half goals in a five-minute span.
Four goals in 1:14 gave the Terps control of the game.
Whittle scored just once in the Terps’ semifinal loss.
The former athletes represented 10 different Terps programs.
It was Maryland’s largest margin of victory of the year.
Cummings and Mercer play for the U.S. team, while Whittle competes for England’s performance squad.
The Terps have not finished a season undefeated since 2001.
