More Girls Are Playing Football. Is That Progress?

More girls are playing high school football, even as the sport draws fewer participants overall in an injury-conscious era.

As part of Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, the National Football League organized its third Women’s Summit for Friday “to discuss how football and the broader sports world can continue to support the advancement of women on and off the field,” said Kamran Mumtaz, an N.F.L. spokesman.

The sport remains male-dominated, with no women playing in the N.F.L. and few on college teams. But some high school girls, playing on teams of boys, are gaining attention for their achievements.

Coach Alejandro Menendez stated that he was pleased with the performance of his players in the first half. He was also rued the fact that Jobby Justin was wrongly flagged offside when the striker had a brilliant opportunity to score.
