LAKE LOUISE, Alberta (AP) Slovenia's Ilka Stuhec won the season-opening downhill at Lake Louise on Friday for her first World Cup victory.

''It's the first one, but I definitely hope it's not the last one,'' Stuhec said.

The 26-year-old Stuhec finished in 1 minute, 45.48 seconds.

Italy's Sofia Goggia was second, and Sweden's Kajsa Kling finished third.

A second downhill is scheduled Saturday, followed by a super-G on Sunday.

American star Lindsey Vonn, the winner of seven of the previous eight downhills at Lake Louise, sis sidelined after breaking an arm in training last month.
