City needed a 65th-minute header by Aymeric Laporte to earn a point at St. Mary’s, after Southampton took the lead through Kyle Walker-Peters.

Pep Guardiola’s team had won every game in the league since a 2-0 home loss to Crystal Palace on Oct. 30.

• Ruben Neves scored a late goal to give Wolverhampton a 2-1 victory over Brentford in a game interrupted for almost 20 minutes because of a drone that hovered above the field.

Ivan Toney’s volley in the 71st minute offset João Moutinho’s goal for Wolves three minutes into the second half. Moutinho then laid a pass off to Neves, who fired a shot from just outside the box into the bottom right corner in the 78th.

• Marcus Rashford scored in the third and final minute of stoppage time to earn Manchester United a 1-0 win over West Ham that lifted the team above its opponent into fourth place in the Premier League.

Korda, the world’s No. 1 and five-time winner in 2021 (including an Olympic gold medal), limited her mistakes in challenging, chilly conditions for a 3-under 69 with four birdies and a bogey, and is 13-under 203 overall.

Danielle Kang, the runner-up at this tournament a year ago, and Mexico’s Gaby Lopez, the 2020 TOC champion, each went bogey-free in matching Korda’s 69, and will begin the final round one shot back. Canada’s Brooke Henderson and Japan’s Yuka Saso matched the day’s low score of 68 and will begin Sunday two and three strokes behind Korda, respectively.

SKIING

MEN’S WORLD CUP: Dave Ryding became the first British winner in the 55-year history of the Alpine skiing World Cup, triumphing in one of the classic slaloms of the men’s circuit in Kitzbuhel, Austria.

Ryding, who was sixth after the opening run, was leading the final leg when he saw the last five racers all make big mistakes and finish well behind – or not at all.

Lucas Braathen, who spectacularly won the slalom in Wengen last week coming from 29th position after the first run, finished 0.38 seconds behind in second, followed by Norwegian teammate Henrik Kristoffersen, who improved from 24th after the opening run.

WOMEN’S WORLD CUP:  A week after crashing at high speed in Austria, Sofia Goggia captured her fourth win in five World Cup downhills this season in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy, despite a mishap-filled run in which the Italian was all over the shortened Olympia delle Tofane course.

Hit by a big gust of wind shortly into her run, Goggia was pushed way wide and had to check her skis to get back into the racing line. A bit further down, she again drifted off course and almost missed a gate. But Goggia regained her speed after each mishap and won by 0.20 seconds ahead of Ramona Siebenhofer of Austria.

Ester Ledecka, the Czech athlete who won golds in both skiing and snowboarding at the 2018 Olympics, finished third, 0.26 behind Goggia.
