KREISCHBERG, Austria (AP) -- Freestyle skiers Bryon Wilson and Heather McPhie of the United States won a World Cup dual moguls event Saturday.

In the men's final, Wilson beat Alex Bilodeau of Canada for his first career World Cup win. Defending World Cup moguls champion Mikael Kingsbury placed third after beating fellow Canadian Philippe Marquis in the small final.

Kingsbury and Bilodeau share the lead in the moguls standings after two events with 160 points each, followed by Wilson with 118.

McPhie defeated American teammate Heidi Kloser in the women's final for her second win of the season and third overall. McPhie also won the season-opening event in Ruka, Finland, last week.

McPhie leads the mogul standings with 200 points, 60 clear of Dufour-Lapointe. Kloser is third with 116.
