Early in the second half, Wiedeman gathered a rebound and volleyed it past the Earlham goalkeeper for a 1-0 WC lead.
Tiffany Hayes nearly put the Quakers up by two late in the match but the Earlham keeper made the save.
Galloway preserved the shutout with a save in the 85th minute off a Yana Miller shot from distance.
