NEW YORK (AP) — Collin Provost, Ryan Decenzo and Greg Lutzka earned the top three spots in the semifinals of the pro street skateboarding competition at the Maloof Money Cup New York on Saturday.

The field was narrowed to 12 skaters who will compete for the $160,000 top prize on Sunday at the permanent skate park built for last year’s event at Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens.
