DAY IN SPORTS: COX SCORES TWO IN Q.H. UPSET; COMMITS.
Kellie Cox scored her second of two goals in the 63rd minute to give the Quartz Hill girls' soccer team a 2-1 upset over visiting Hart of Newhall in a nonleague game Thursday. It was the first victory of the year for the Rebels (1-2-1).
Ebony Lewis scored the lone goal for the Indians (1-2), whose goalie, Melissa Deckers, will miss Tuesday's game against Chatsworth after receiving a red card for her part in an altercation during a corner-kick scramble in front of the goal.
Also on Thursday, Cox committed to Cal State Fullerton on a soccer scholarship. She will join sister Jodie, who plays softball for the Titans.
