Battery hooked up reversed

2011 Polaris with a 550 fan. Friend up north hooked up his battery backwards. Tried hooking it up correctly but sparks at battery terminals. Solenoid clicks when cables are connected. It runs but won’t start after being put in reverse.
Any thoughts of what is wrong? Solenoid?
