Cutrera and Corson each handed out an assist while Elaina Corson scored three and Molly Green and Michaela Donnelly had three apiece. Mel Rodgers made her first start of the year in net and played three quarters, matching her career-high with six saves.
After Stevenson (2-7) opened the scoring in the game, the Profs scored the next 13 straight to pull away early for the win.
Renshaw started the scoring at 11:23 while Elaina Corson followed less than a minute later.  Green added one assisted by Donnelly, who then scored one of her own before Renshaw finished out the quarter with a free-position goal to give the Profs a 5-1 lead.
Rowan kept rolling in the second as Julianna Corson netted her first goal, and then assisted on one by her younger sister Elaina at 10:36. Jamie Cutrera got into the scoring column with three consecutive goals, the first two in a span of 33 seconds, and then the third just two minutes later. Julianna Corson scored again at 6:31 and Renshaw added her third to close out the first half with Rowan holding a 12-1 advantage.
The Profs scored their 13th consecutive goal to open the third quarter, when Elaina Corson took a pass from Jamie Cutrera. But the streak came to an end when Stevenson's Isabelle VanEmburgh scored the Mustang's second of the game at 8:13. Although Cutrera answered right back with one at 4:40, VanEmburgh scored two more as the Mustangs came within 14-4 at the end of the third quarter.
With the Profs holding the 10-goal differential that establishes a running clock, Stevenson scored two in a row to come within 14-6 and erase the running clock. But Julianna Corson built Rowan's lead back up to 16-6 with a pair of goals, with one assisted by Green, and the other by Trish Gillen, to record her 20th of the season. Renshaw netted her fourth of the game, and 21st of the year, to close out the win before Stevenson scored the game's final goal with 17 seconds remaining.
Reilly Shaup and Emily Ketcham closed out the game in goal for the Profs in the fourth quarter.
Rowan remains at home and will host Cabrini on Wednesday at 4 p.m.
