According to the Lansing State Journal, Lansing Ignite is currently one of the hottest teams in the U.S. soccer landscape.

After defeating Orlando City B, 3-0, on Saturday night at Cooley Law School Stadium in front of more than 3,200 fans, Nate Miller's squad has gone unbeaten in seven consecutive matches.

That run of form has seen the team jump from 5th place to second in USL League One with 33 points, only one point back of league leaders North Texas SC.

Thanks to fitting the Ignite's home matches around the Lansing Lugnuts baseball schedule, LIFC has played a league high 22 matches.

Let's face it, the biggest trophy is on the table.  The top four teams in the league make the playoffs, and Lansing, in its current form, seems like a strong possibility to make the playoffs.
