    PANAMA CITY, Panama – Romario Campbell and Vincent Earle scored in the opening 20 minutes as 10-man Waterhouse FC posted a 2-1 win over host Tauro in the CONCACAF Champions League at the Estadio Rommel Fernandez on Thursday.

    The CCL debutants got off to a dream start in Group 4, when Campbell hammered a 27-yard free kick into the upper right corner of the net in the second minute.

    Waterhouse doubled its lead in the 19th minute through Earle, who tapped a shot into the open net after goalkeeper Kevin Melgar came off his line to challenge Kenroy Howell.

    Tauro -- scoreless in three Panamanian Apertura matches -- scored in the 86th minute.  Jair Renteria knocked in the rebound after Christian Lopez fired a shot off the crossbar.

    Before conceding a second goal, Tauro had a terrific chance to equalize. In the seventh minute, Miguel Castillo played a ball to Jose Luis Garces and the striker beat Waterhouse goalkeeper Richard McCallum. A sliding Hughan Gray, though, cleared the ball off the line. 

    Garces nearly capitalized on a defensive miscue by Upston Edwards, stripping the defender and shedding his tackle before firing a shot from 10 yards off the near post in the 29th minute. 

    With the game wide open, at times resembling a track meet, Waterhouse almost added a third goal in the 56th minute.  Jermaine Anderson was played behind the defense only to fire wide of the mark.

    Waterhouse, the second team from Jamaica to compete in the CCL after Harbour View in 2008/09, was reduced to 10 men in the 64th minute, following Edwards’ sendinf off for his second bookable offense.

    In the 78th minute, Tauro’s Miguel Castillo put a 20-yard free kick on frame, McCallum dived to his left to parry the attempt away with his right hand.  A minute later, Castillo lobbed the ball toward goal as McCallum produced another save.

    Waterhouse will head to Washington, D.C. to face D.C. United at Robert F. Kennedy Stadium on August 20, while Waterhouse hosts Tauro eight days later at the National Stadium in Kingston.
