Mawicke potted the only goal of the match at 14:24 when she sent a low corner kick through the box that found its way inside the far post.
Salem State outshot the Lyons 12-6 on the evening, but the visitors held a 5-0 edge in corner kicks. Senior Leah Potcner (Wilmington, Mass./Wilmington) started in goal for the Vikings and recorded two saves.
The shutout was Leddy's 10th of the season, moving her into a fourth-place tie on Wheaton's single-season record list.
