Felix Neureuther of Germany finally mastered Marcel Hirscher to win a high-class World Cup slalom on Sunday.
Neureuther made up a 0.05-second deficit from the first leg to win by 0.21 from the Austrian overall World Cup leader, who was seeking his fourth straight slalom win.
The 28-year-old German threw his arms out wide and shouted with delight on crossing the line, then repeated the gesture as he watched first-run leader Hirscher fall short of victory.
Ivica Kostelic of Croatia was third, 0.25 behind Neureuther's two-run time of 1 minute, 50.53 seconds.
Kostelic was seeking to win the Wengen slalom for the fourth straight year.
Hirscher extended his lead in the overall standings to 188 points from Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway, who skips slalom races.
The 23-year-old Austrian leads the slalom standings from Neureuther, and extended his record of finishing on the podium in every slalom he has completed to 18 races over the past two years.
Ted Ligety of the United States, who is third overall, placed 13th, 1.33 behind Neureuther. Ligety earned 20 World Cup points and is 239 behind defending champion Hirscher.
It was Neureuther's second World Cup win this season, adding to the parallel event at Munich, Germany. He has four career victories.
