She scored her maiden A-League goal in the 5-0 win over Canberra United in January and scored again the following week against Brisbane Roar. She also bagged a second-half double in the Nix’s penultimate round win over Adelaide United in March.
Wisnewski’s contender for Goal of the Year
Wisnewski’s rocket against Brisbane in January saw her win the Liberty A-League goal of the month award for January and with it, nomination for the goal of the year honour.
The 20-year-old box-to-box midfielder started the last 14 of Wellington’s matches after missing the opening four through injury.
She also scored in the Phoenix’s final round match against Melbourne Victory to secure a come-from-behind draw against the two-time defending champions.
