Bos­ton Univer­sity

fresh­man Joel Farabee had a nat­u­ral hat trick in a 6:52 span of the first pe­riod and the United States beat Kaza­khstan 8-2 on Fri­day night in Vic­to­ria, British Columbia, to im­prove to 2-0 in the world ju­nior hockey cham­pi­onship.

Liver­pool over

whelmed Arse­nal’s meek chal­lenge in a 5-1 vic­tory at An­field to claim a ninth straight Premier League win and open a nine-point lead at the top of the stand­ings. Sec­ond-placed Tot­ten­ham un­ex­pect­edly lost 3-1 at home to Wolver­hamp­ton Wan­der­ers in its first­match since se­ri­ously en­ter­ing the ti­tle-race con­ver­sa­tion. Manch­ester City will climb back into sec­ond spot if it beats Southamp­ton on Sun­day, but there is an omi­nous feel about Liver­pool’s ruth­less per­for­mances.

Floy­dMay­weather is ● promis­ing en­ter­tain­ment when he fights Ja­panese kick­boxer Ten­shin Nasu- kawa in three rounds of ex­hi­bi­tion box­ing on New Year’s Eve, but not nec­es­sar­ily a knock­out. The Amer­i­can was adamant that his op­po­nent wasn’t go­ing to knock him out or down on Mon­day.

For­mer UFC light● weight cham­pion BJ Penn tapped out for the first time in his 17-year mixed mar­tial arts ca­reer. He lost to Ryan Hall in the first round at UFC 232 in In­gle­wood, Calif., drop­ping the Hall of Famer to 0-6-1 in his past seven fights since 2010.
