BRI-MATHIAS HODGE - Friday, October 22, 2010
The Yanks in Finland look to end the season on a high note and avoid relegation as the final weekend of Veikkausliiga action takes place concurrently on Saturday afternoon.

MyPa - VPS

Greg Eckhardt is expected to start in defense as Vaasa look to assure themselves of another season in the top flight on Saturday away at Saviniemi.

Yank keeper Brian Pope remains out long-term for VPS with a shoulder injury.

VPS are now in 10th place tied on points with Haka. Both JJK and Oulu are tied three points back of Vaasa and so a single point will keep VPS out of the relegation playoff.

A win would see VPS overtaking MyPa, as the hosts are three spots, but just a single point ahead of the guests.

IFK Mariehamn - KuPS

The ┼land yanks go into the final game of the season needing a win at home at the Wikl÷f Holding Arena to assure their top league status.

Lamar Neagle is expect to start up top after scoring the islanders lone goal last week against Lahti.

Mason Trafford and Giuseppe Funicello will take up their usual spots in defense for Mariehamn.

Mariehamn are in 11th place with 28 points. JJK and Oulu are just one point back fighting it out to avoid relegation. KuPS will likely finish the season a suprising second as HJK has already clinched the league title and TPS are three points back.

FC Honka - FC Inter

Daniel Antunez is expected to start in the Saturday matinee in Espoo.

With Inter having no chance of qualifying for a European place, the stakes are low for the guests.

Inter are in 6th place in the Veikkausliiga standings, two points behind Jaro and safe from relegation.

Honka are four points ahead in fourth place.
