(AP) Felix Neureuther of Germany edged overall World Cup champion Marcel Hirscher in a men's season-ending slalom race on Sunday.

Neureuther hung on to his opening-leg lead to finish 0.36 seconds ahead of Austrian Hirscher in a two-run time of 1 minute, 52.20 seconds.

Hirscher already won the season-long slalom standings and ensured he finished on the podium in all nine World Cup races in the discipline. He also won the world championships gold medal.

Ivica Kostelic, the 2011 overall World Cup champion from Croatia, was third, trailing Neureuther by 0.51.

Neureuther, who limped off the course after crashing out in Saturday's giant slalom, got his second slalom victory this season.

The podium placings were the same Sunday as when Neureuther won in January at Wengen, Switzerland.
