Area soccer products Erin Craig and Megan Lindsay are finding some success abroad this summer in Sweden and Finland, respectively.

Craig's Assi IF is absolutely dominating the third-tier regional league, Division 1 - Norrland, with a stunning 13-1-1 record through 15 of 22 games. The second-place side is four points back with a 12-3-0 record, but does not possess the impressive scoring tally of 61 goals for and eight allowed that Assi IF has, scoring 18 fewer and giving up twice as many. The team is hoping their success will lead to promotion to the second division next year should they hold on and find success in a pair of qualification games at the conclusion of the season.

Lindsay is currently tied for fifth in the league with 10 goals, tied for the most among non-domestic players. Four of her 10 goals came in games against Aland United, perhaps inspiring the loan. She scored two in a 3-3 draw earlier in the season and both goals in their 7-2 loss in the next to last game before the break.
When play resumes at the end of August Lindsay will have two games to potentially get Kokkola F10 out of the four-team zone determining the relegation round, a group-phase playoff among the bottom four clubs to avoid relegation. Her club is five points back of safety with games against another team in the zone and the club they are chasing.
