A 30-yard blast from Monica Ocampo gave Mexico a 1-1 draw against England on Monday in Wolfsburg, Germany - the biggest surprise so far after two days of the Women's World Cup. Ocampo's dipping drive from far out in the 33d minute was a beauty of a shot. Still, goalie Karen Bardsley had plenty of time to react. She trotted slowly to her right corner and put out her hands. It was too late. England coach Hope Powell said the ball might have swerved, but she was forced to draw an inevitable conclusion about her keeper's effort: "She should have saved it. " Fara Williams had given England the lead in the 21st from a corner kick.

Harry Kennedy is worried about what might happen when his soccer team plays its English hosts next week. It just might be a mismatch when the team from Chester County visits soccer-mad England on March 21. Kennedy's players are not sure if the Britons will be able to compete with them. Are they fools? Actually, they are teenage girls. And when the Rockettes, the 15-and-under team from the Downingtown Spirit United soccer club, play three games in Sheffield, England, on the six-day trip, they just might be the favorite in some of those games.

If you yearn to visit England but don't want to journey across the "pond," Alison Black has a solution. In December, the native of Kingston-on-Thames opened Mulberry Tearooms, a restaurant at 60 S. Main St. in Medford that looks like an English outpost right down to the nine tea varieties, scones, shortbreads, cream meringues and pasties (a potato and cheese concoction) on the menu; the china tea cups on the sideboard; and a de rigueur picture of the queen on the wall. Queen Victoria, that is. For a picture of her great-great-granddaughter Elizabeth at her coronation in 1952, you'll have to visit the restroom.
