England, the defending trophy holder, dominated yesterday's doubles action and moved ahead of the United States in the final-round court tennis series for the Bathurst Cup at the Racquet Club. Julian Snow, British amateur singles champion, and Michael McMurrugh prevailed, 6-3, 6-3, 6-2, against Morris Clothier, the U.S. amateur champion from Valley Forge, and Henry Bunis of New York City. Before the match, England and the United States were deadlocked at 1-1 as a result of the singles triumphs by Snow and Clothier on Sunday.

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.

OAKMONT, Pa. - The highlight of Thursday's weather-interrupted opening round of the U.S. Open? Well, for a select few, it might have been during the first suspension of play in the late morning, when the European threesome of Martin Kaymer, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald (and their caddies) found themselves stuck in the media dining tent at Oakmont Country Club taking in the pivotal England-Wales football match from the Euro Championships in France. What else were they going to be doing?

SAMUEL FOSTER, who now lives in Philadelphia, lived in the United States for decades without knowing he was a man without a country. He found that out in 2008 when he entered a homeless shelter here. It seems like fiction. Samuel Foster, 84, was living in America, but unable to prove his nationality. Technically, he was stateless, but became a ward of the state - ours. A few weeks back, he got a passport and wants to leave to travel to England to join his son, whom he has not seen for 35 years, for Christmas.

Ten years ago this summer, Mark Hellendrung and a group of investors sat down with the owners of Pabst Brewing Co. and convinced them to part with one of its many retro beer brands, Narragansett . "It was worth everything," said Hellendrung, a former executive with Nantucket Nectars and Magic Hat Brewing Co. "And it was worth nothing. " Narragansett had been around since 1890, and became part of the huge portfolio of brands that Pabst began acquiring in the 1970s when it took over its parent, Falstaff.

BATH, ENGLAND- I'd like to say I got the faint scar on my left eyebrow defending a girl or helping a friend in need. That sort of thing appealed to me then. I was 20 and had read too much Hemingway. Actually, I was hit in the head by a swiftly opened bathroom door. My blood dribbled on the grimy, maroon carpet of what became my favorite pub in England, the Huntsman. This dim, dirty pub in the shade of Bath's magnificent medieval abbey was a second home. Amid smells of cigarette smoke and fried fish, with the Beatles or ABBA on the jukebox, our crew parked at a small table talking everything from the Clinton administration to rugby.

Thursday is a great day for the Irish - on Philadelphia stages, that is - as the decade-young Inis Nua Theatre Company and two-year-old Irish Heritage Theatre present the next chapters in their catalogs of Celtic-inflected plays with the openings of, respectively, Ciphers by Dawn King and A Night With Lady G , three one-act comedies by Lady Augusta Gregory. What unites these companies is their dedication to plays that emanate from or relate to the British Isles - Ireland, obviously, in the case of Irish Heritage Theatre, and, for Inis Nua, England, Scotland, and Wales, as well.

New Jersey's Department of Environmental Protection has extended for two years the operating permit of a Cape May County electric-generating plant that for decades has been ranked among the state's worst air polluters. Under a previous DEP administrative consent order, the coal- and oil-fired B.L. England plant was scheduled to cease operations in May 2015 unless it was on track to convert to gas-fired generation. The plant has a generating capacity of about 300 megawatts. A presence on the Great Egg Harbor River in Upper Township since the 1960s, the plant is among the state's leading contributors of pollutants that create smog and can aggravate asthma and other respiratory problems.

THE MAN who once proclaimed "Saturday night's alright for fighting" may soon learn what longtime marrieds already know - the other six days of the week can accommodate a dustup just as well. Elton John and his life partner of 21 years, David Furnish , will set sail on the sea of holy matrimony in May. It's a move prompted by last summer's legalization of same-sex marriage in England. "We don't feel the need to take an extra step legally," Furnish told the Las Vegas Review Journal . "But since we're committed for life, we feel it's really important to take that step, and take advantage of that amazing change in legislation.
