WATERBURY — The core group for the Morgan boys soccer team has been together for three seasons. They made three straight trips to the Shoreline Conference tournament finals. But the group’s maiden voyage to Saturday’s Class S state championship game was a special one and, in their last game together, they didn’t disappoint. Game MVP Juan Avila scored twice in the second half within a 2-minute span to put the game away for No. 5 seed Morgan, a 4-0 winner over No. 3 Somers at Snyder Field.
Two Shoreline towns that border one another will be represented in Saturday’s state boys soccer finals, but with vastly different histories of success in the sport. Hand, a perennial contender in the Southern Connecticut Conference, went 19 years in between visits to the state championship finals and is now one step away from repeating in Class L.“You can’t say it’s just one player. It’s definitely the team,” Hand co-captain Owen McShane said.
Girls soccer: St. Joseph shuts out Hand, to go for Class L three-peat SaturdayWEST HAVEN — Plenty of quality girls soccer players have come through the St. Joseph program, making the Cadets a state championship contender year in and year out. The Cadets look to have another All-American candidate in the freshman ranks — and she’s already committed to Division I Villanova University. Ninth grader Maddie Fried scored twice, once in each half, to help No. 3 seed St. Joseph defeat No.
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".
