    KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Waterhouse FC celebrated the first-ever CONCACAF Champions League game in Jamaica by taking over the Group 4 lead with a commanding performance in a 4-1 triumph over Tauro FC on Thursday night.

    MoneyGram Player of the Game: Jermaine Anderson (Waterhouse FC)

    Striker Jermaine Anderson scored his first two CCL goals to pace Waterhouse (2-0-1, 6 points), which moved past idle D.C. United (1-0-0, 3 points) into first place.  Damarley Samuels and Neicko Williams also found the net at the National Stadium.

    The loss put Tauro (0-0-2, 0 points) on the verge of elimination as it suffered a seventh consecutive CCL loss.

    The host went on the attack from the opening whistle.

    In the 13th minute, Samuels ran onto a long ball on the right side and sent a low, bouncing ball across the area to Anderson, who one-touched his shot from seven yards past goalkeeper Eric Hughes for a 1-0 lead. 

    The second goal wasn't as appealing, but it counted all the same.  The visitor had difficulty clearing the ball on the left side.  Samuels got possession and pushed through the defense before he fired a shot to the near post for a 2-0 advantage.

    Though Tauro emerged from the break with a sense of urgency, Waterhouse remained in an opportunistic mood.  Anderson latched onto a cross-field pass, bolted toward the net before unleashing an 18-yard effort between two defenders for a three-goal margin in the 55th minute.

    Tauro finally found the net in the 64th minute as Jose Luis Garces headed in a corner kick past goalkeeper Richard McCallum.

    Two minutes into stoppage time, Neicko Williams restored the host’s three-goal advantage by pouncing on a loose ball from point-blank range after Hughes left a rebound.

    Waterhouse will finish group stage action when it hosts D.C. United on September 16, while Tauro will welcome the Major League Soccer side on October 21.
