The top-ranked Maryland women's lacrosse team won on the road at No. 2 Florida on Saturday, 14-4, blowing out the team closest to it in national rankings. The Terps moved to a perfect 6-0 on the season and will remain atop national polling as they continue their national title defense.

Caroline Wannen scored four goals and chipped in three assists for Maryland. Kacie Longo, Jen Giles and Zoe Stukenberg added two goals apiece, as Maryland outshot Florida 31-16. The Terps' free-position shot edge was 7-1, and they controlled 15 draws to five for the Gators. Statistically speaking, it was a dominant outing for Cathy Reese's team.

Megan Taylor didn't see many shots on goal, but she had four saves and earned the win.

The Terps are off for the next few days, ahead of playing two games next week. They'll visit Penn at 7 p.m. Wednesday and then return to College Park to start a four-game home swing against James Madison next Saturday.
