MARIBOR, Slovenia (AP) — Overall leader Tina Maze won a World Cup slalom Sunday before her home fans a day after she just missed capturing the giant slalom.

She led after the opening run and finished the two runs in 1 minute, 33.68 seconds down the Radvanje course. Frida Hansdotter of Sweden was second, 0.86 seconds behind. Kathrin Zettel of Austria was third, 1.13 back.

Maze lost Saturday's giant slalom by 0.08 seconds to Lindsey Vonn.

In the slalom, Vonn failed to qualify for the second leg. American teenager Mikaela Shiffrin moved up from 13th after the opening run to finish sixth and maintained a 13-point lead ahead of Maze in the slalom standings.

In the overall standings, Maze has more than twice as many points as her nearest challenger, Maria Hoefl-Riesch.
