WESTMINSTER, Md. – McDaniel built a 5-0 lead at the intermission en route to an 8-0 win over Neumann in non-conference women's soccer action on Saturday.

Meghan Sturgill (Westminster, Md./Winters Mill) tallied twice to lead the Green Terror (3-0), who has not allowed a goal in its first three games of the season – the program's longest shutout streak to start a season since 2000.

Briana King made nine saves for the Knights (0-3), who were outshot 26-5 in the game.

Maggie Quinn (Crofton, Md./Archbishop Spalding) tallied her fourth goal of the season off a feed from Nicole Hill (Bowie, Md./Bowie) just 10:45 into the game for a 1-0 lead.

Quinn then found Sturgill 12 minutes later to double the advantage.

Nearly 10 minutes later, freshman Sam Gasior (Fallston, Md./Fallston) registered her first collegiate goal.

Sturgill and Allie Sokolik (Mahwah, N.J./Mahwah) tallied 2 minutes, 12 seconds apart to make it a 5-0 game at the break.

Hill needed just 39 seconds into the second half to stretch the advantage to six before Julia Pope scored off the second of Hill's assists at the 49:58 mark.

Amanda Archer (East Windsor, N.J./Notre Dame) registered her first career goal in the 81st minute to set the final margin.

The Green Terror returns to action at home against York (Pa.) on Wednesday. Game time is 4:30 p.m.
