A series of injuries briefly disrupted the flow of the game, but Hammers opened the scoring on 35 minutes, as a one-touch passing move saw Chantelle Foster chip the ball in for April Bowers to sweetly volley a stunning shot into the far corner.
The second half saw the Hammers begin where they had left off and with Leigh Houlihan and Sophie Reed finding space in the centre of midfield, they started to move the ball around with devasting effect.
A second goal soon came when Bowers drove into space and spotting the keeper a step too far off her line, chipped home from 20 yards.
At the back, Holly Trimby's strength and pace ensured Cambridge attacks were thwarted, while Roberston added a third.
A fourth soon followed when Faye Cook turned the ball home from close range to complete a fine performance .
Hammers: L Picton, Mitchell, Reed, Trimby, Keown, Cook, Houlihan, Bowers, Kershaw, Robertson, Abela.
Subs: F Picton, Foster, Hayes, Parlane.
