BY foxsports • January 15, 2016

FLACHAU, Austria (AP) Veronika Velez Zuzulova of Slovakia won her second straight World Cup night slalom on Friday with a blistering second run.

Trailing second after the first run, Velez Zuzulova pushed past first-run leader Nastasia Noens of France for back-to-back wins on the Hermann Maier course this week. She also won a floodlit slalom on Tuesday.

With snow falling throughout the second run, Noens made too many mistakes and finished fourth, failing to win her first race.

Slalom World Cup leader Frida Hansdotter of Sweden was second and Petra Vlhova of Slovakia finished third.

Velez Zuzulova finished in a combined time of one minute, 49.99 seconds, leaving Hansdotter .20 seconds behind. Vlhova was .53 seconds behind the winner.
