Salem jumped out to a 2-0 halftime lead and never looked back, as the Spartan boys soccer squad defeated Cave Spring 5-0 Tuesday evening on the turf at Dwight Bogle Stadium in the River Ridge opener for both teams.
Seniors Jack Maxey and Justin Applegate joined junior Troy Hamner and sophomores Grant Foley and Hayden Helm as each scored for the Spartans.
Andrew Franklin picked up the shutout in goal for Salem (4-2-1; 1-0 River Ridge), while Cave Spring freshman keeper Adam Sledd made two saves in the loss for the Knights (4-2; 0-1)
