The goal wasn’t the prettiest. But neither was the game. But it was an important goal. And it gave Eau Claire Memorial an important win. Somehow, someway, Ali Bowe got the ball across the line for the tiebreaking goal in the 82nd minute. And Memorial went on to solidify its hold on first place with a 3-1 win over Hudson on Thursday night in Big Rivers Conference girls soccer action at Memorial High School. “It was kind of grit,” Bowe said with a laugh.
Kelsey Kitzrow’s goal in the fourth minute started it. Mikki Koller’s clearance in the 90th minute finished it. In between, Eau Claire North scratched and clawed for a hard-fought win. Behind Kitzrow’s two goals and some gritty defending, North knocked off perennial conference power Hudson 3-2 in Big Rivers girls soccer action Thursday night. “I definitely think this is going to give us a huge boost in our confidence,” Kitzrow said.
It wasn't so much Abby Wambach, arms aloft, draped in an American flag or even Carli Lloyd's absurd goal from midfield - though those both will go down as iconic images. It was something else that really stuck with me after the U.S.'s 5-2 win over Japan in Sunday's Women's World Cup final.
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".
