    Austrian wins jumping stage

     ROVANIEMI, Finland (AP) -- Mario Stecher of Austria won the World Cup Nordic Combined ski-jumping portion Saturday with jumps of 94 and 98.5 metres for 258.5 points, and Norway's Bjarte Engen Vik was the runner-up with 93 and 96.5 metres, gaining him 253.5 points.
     Stecher and Vik were the best ski jumpers for the second day in a row. In the season-opener Friday, Stecher and Vik tied for first in ski jumping in a sprint event.
     The 20-year-old Stecher goes out first in Sunday's 15K cross country and has a commanding lead in front of his main rivals, the Finns Jari Mantila, World Cup holder Samppa Lajunen and Hannu Manninen. Stecher and the Finns claimed the top four spots in last season's World Cup.
