IGLS, Austria (AP) -- American Elana Meyers Taylor won her fifth bobsled World Cup of the season on Friday to extend her lead in the standings.

Meyers Taylor and pusher Lauryn Williams trailed Anja Schneiderheinze and Annika Drazek by 0.06 seconds after the opening heat, before winning the final run and edging the Germans on combined time by 0.07 seconds.

Jamie Greubel Poser and Cherrelle Garrett of the United States finished 0.97 behind in third, with Americans Jazmine Fenlator and Lauren Gibbs another 0.02 back in fourth.

With one World Cup remaining -- in Sochi, Russia, next week -- Meyers Taylor leads Schneiderheinze by 104 points. A win is worth 225 points.

A two-man bobsled race was scheduled later Friday.
