The Quakers held an 8-3 edge in shots in the second half as well as an 18-14 advantage in the game, but failed find the back of the net. Senior Jacob Ebbs led the charge with five shots individually. Junior Bret Marshall and fresman Yuki Adams each fired three shots.
Tod Oram, who came on as a substitution for Manchester, led the Spartans with five shots.
Both goalies finished with shutouts. Earlham netminder, freshman Nicola Manni, finished with three saves while Brady Forman had four.
Earlham now stands at 7-6-1 on the season and 4-2-1 in HCAC competition. The Quakers return to action next Tuesday for a 3:30 p.m. contest at Defiance.
