Forget for a moment win-loss records, standings and playoff scenarios. Sometimes a team just needs a win to boost morale and build confidence. That’s something the Mattituck High School boys soccer team could sure use these days. This losing thing is not something the Tuckers are really accustomed to. No doubt about it, though, Mattituck, with its proud history, has hit hard times. In short, what does Mattituck need the most right now? “Goals,” striker Axel Rodriguez answered.
The Southold/Greenport high school girls soccer team was facing the real potential of trouble. As if it wasn’t enough that defender Marie Mullen’s playing status Monday was questionable with an ailing ankle, goalkeeper Hayley Brigham was out with a hairline fracture/third-degree sprain of her right wrist. Beyond that, the First Settlers have been banged up with bumps and bruises. And, oh yes, Center Moriches was in town. That would be Center Moriches, as in the 2016 Suffolk County Class B finalist.
As difficult as Saturday’s high school football game was for Riverhead, it was considerably harder for Alec Kiernan. And Kiernan played for Centereach, which breezed to victory. Despite playing with a heavy heart, Kiernan was the unquestioned player of the game. The senior ran for four touchdowns (a career high that gave him five in two games) and 170 yards. He dedicated the 43-8 win to his brother, Daniel, who died on Sunday at the age of 26.
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".
