Zoe Stukenberg (Marriotts Ridge) scored four times as the top-ranked Maryland women's lacrosse team (9-0) defeated visiting No. 15 James Madison, 14-10, on Saturday afternoon.

We went out and did what we needed to do, and I was really proud of the team at halftime. I think we let up a bit in intensity and execution in the second half, and that's something we'll need to work on."
