    PANAMA CITY, Panama – Tauro captured its 12th Panamanian title on Friday, defeating San Francisco 1-0 in the Apertura final at the Estadio Rommel Fernandez.

    Israel Sanjur scored the winning goal in the 28th minute after San Francisco goalkeeper  William Negrete could not hold on to a right-sided cross under intense pressure from the leaping Reinel Herrera.  The 21-year-old reacted well to the loose ball, controlling with his chest and striking calmly with his right-foot from eight-yards out.

    As a result of the victory, Tauro will participate in its fifth CONCACAF Champions League.  It joins United States sides D.C. United and the New York Red Bulls as the only teams to qualify thus far for the 2014-15 edition of the competition.
