OSLO, Norway (AP) Sara Takanashi of Japan won the last women's ski jump World Cup event of the season Friday but it wasn't enough to prevent Daniela Iraschko-Stolz of Austria from clinching the overall title.

Iraschko-Stolz finished fifth which was enough to hold off her Japanese rival by 34 points in the season-long standings with 1,007 points to 973.

Takanashi jumped 128 and 127 meters on the large hill for 263.8 points, while Sarah Hendrickson of the United States was second on 257.1 points. Taylor Henrich of Canada was third.

It's Iraschko-Stolz's first crystal globe, with Takanashi having won the last two overall titles. The Austrian won five competitions this season, and Friday was only the second time she finished outside the top four.
