Jagdeosingh rounded Toronto goalkeeper Stefan Frei in the 68th minute to finish easily for the Islanders, semifinalists in last year's competition.

Panama club San Francisco, which suffered a shock setback at the beginning of the week when an unidentified gunmen injured three players with bullet wounds, beat San Juan Jabloteh of Trinidad 2-0 at home.
