Wisniewski took over the game in the second half, scoring the first two goals of the half to extend ODU's lead to 10-3, then scoring her team's final three goals of the contest in the last 6:29 of the game.
UMBC was led by senior midfielder Renee Tirocchi, who scored three goals and junior midfielder Ashley Staines, who came off the bench to score a pair of goals and add an assist.
