After a 2-0 lead in the break, the Matildas were looking comfortable.
Though Jamaica were in it with a point in the first 20 minutes of the second, before Kerr came back in the 69th minute with a tap in, then again in the 83rd for the fourth.
The massive four-point haul puts the Aussies in second place, taking them to the Allianz Riviera on Sunday.
Kerr told SBS everyone worked together to get the win.
