Sarah Graber put Rose up 1-0 in the second minute when she converted a feed from Liz Ridgeway on a cross from the left to the middle of the field.
A three-goal outburst by Julie Roebel during a seven-minute span late in the first half gave RHIT a 4-0 lead at the break.
The Engineers' Elisabeth Baca used Jennifer Gordon's third assist of the afternoon to make the final score 5-0 in favor of the home team with 24 minutes to play.
