Nominate games you think should be featured by emailing PJSports@poughkeepsiejournal.com. Boys soccer: Poughkeepsie at Beacon, 4:30 p.m. Monday — The Bulldogs have been using a simple formula for success this season: spread the offense. The strategy has been paying off, as Beacon started this season with seven wins, no losses and a tie.
SOMERS – Kyle Strack collapsed in front of the goal line, then was smothered by his teammates. The Our Lady of Lourdes High School football team’s junior running back and corner back had just made two spectacular plays — ones that decided the game and led the Warriors to a 19-13 win over the host Tuskers, the defending New York State Class A champions on Saturday. Though nearly speechless, he managed to describe the feeling. “In that moment I was just mind-blown,” Strack said.
SOMERS – Tony DeMatteo said it didn’t quite have the feel of a state championship game. His Somers High School football team’s game on Saturday against visiting Our Lady of Lourdes simply took on the feeling of “just another game,” despite a wild finish. Lourdes defeated the Tuskers 19-13 in overtime, knocking off the previously undefeated New York State Class A champions. The Warriors were Class A state finalists two years ago.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
