GOODING - The Gooding Recreation District has overturned its ban on girls playing youth football.
The recreation district's board voted unanimously to kill the rule after it was enforced against two girls who wanted to play football this season.
The Magic Valley Youth Football League allows boys and girls to play on its fifth- and sixth-grade teams, but it doesn't have enforcement powers over individual districts.
Gooding was the only participating district to not permit girls to play in the league.
