ABSECON — A bagel with cream cheese. That's the secret. Well, sure, Holy Spirit junior catcher Matt Rivera will go with that. Sounds good.
Whatever it was, something had Rivera locked in at the plate on Monday afternoon, as he crushed a pair of two-run home runs to help the host Spartans dispatch Ocean City — a team rebuilding after graduating 8 players from its South Jersey Group 3 championship starting lineup a year ago — 10-0 in five innings.
