Picking up where they left off a season ago, the Camden Military Academy junior varsity soccer team extended their win streak to 14 matches with a 5-0 win over Buford in last Thursday’s season opener.
The Spartans won all 13 of their matches a year ago for head coach Mohsen Ferjani.
CMA got off to a flying start in this match as Brian Guarino buried a low cross from Humberto Larrañaga in the eighth minute to give the visitors the lead for keeps. 
The Yellow Jackets tried to respond, but an organized and compact Spartan team proved tough to crack. CMA’s speedy attacking quartet of captain Jacob McGuire, David Hooton, Jake Harper and Guarino proved problematic for Buford, which gave up a second goal in the 17th minute, scored by McGuire after a perfect cross from the left wing.
The Spartans increased their lead to 3-0 by hitting on a counter attack following a turnover near midfield, with midfielder Caleb Brady rolling a ball through the Yellow Jacket defense and beautifully finished by a very active Harper.
The hosts came out of the intermission looking more comfortable than in the first half, but again they were exposed by CMA’s speed on the counter. The Spartans had three separate one-on-one opportunities to go ahead after exposing Buford's defense, but the host goal keeper saved the day by stopping shots from Harper, Key and Hooton.
Those saves opened the door for the Yellow Jackets to score at least one goal, but the Spartans defense, led by Matt Zimmerman, Robbie Pierce, William Ladevich, Skyler Ramsbey and goalie Connor Rushing, made no mistakes on the waning moments of the match.
Harper scored two more goals in the first 10 minutes of the second half to complete his hat trick. CMA played all its substitutes and that group kept the 5-0 shutout intact through the final whistle.
 After the match, Ferjani said that it was nice to keep the win streak intact, but his team can still continue to improve.
“We have a lot of work to be done ahead of us,” he said, “but coach Jair Ararat and I are optimistic about the outcome.”
 The Spartans return to action on Tuesday when they visit Cheraw before opening their home season on Thursday against Indian Land.
