Champions Telkom will have to wait until next season in their search for league title victory without conceding a goal. This is after bitter rivals Strathmore University Scorpions ended their unbeaten run yesterday afternoon at City Park. Even though they have dominated women’s hockey in the country, Telkom still dream of winning the title on a clean sheet.
Telkom coach Jos Openda has his work cut out as he seeks to restore a winning mentality in his team. With the Africa Cup for Club Championships set for January 20 to 28 in Accra, Ghana, there is little room for any slip-ups. The undisputed Africa hockey champions will be looking to defend their title and win a record 10th African gong. However, they face an uphill task if Kenya’s performance at this year’s Africa Cup of Nations held in Ismailia, Egypt, a fortnight ago, is anything to go by.
Front-runners Kenya Police and Telkom inched closer to winning this season’s Kenya Hockey Union league titles. Former men’s Premier League champions Police enhanced their campaign with another victory at the weekend to maintain a 12-point lead as they seek to end a three-year trophy drought. The law enforcers have been in top form this season maintaining an unbeaten run as the league inches closer to the end.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
