|Coach Vallee led Jaguars to two Cup Finals|
The mid-year spectacle had proven to a resuscitation of form for the Queenstown-based side of having a chance to live up to their full potential that was hindered at the start of the year due to injuries of several key players.
Thumping victories in the group stages over Albirex Niigata (Singapore) and Police SA had drawn the Jaguars to face powerhouses Warriors FC in the quarterfinals and a hard fought victory against Hougang United in the semis before clinching the berth to their second successive Cup final.

|Adi Said scored Wasps second goal|
Adi Said was the next to stab home to double the score in the 47th minute by finished off the deflected cross to him from a sprint on the left flank by Azwan Ali.
With time running out for Tanjong Pagar in the match, Coach Vallee decided to flash his trump cards with the likes of both Asraf Rashid and Firdaus Idros in the second half to inject more flairs to his attacking side which did cause some stirs in the Bruneians' backline but only to see a diving header by Firdaus ruled offside in the 68th minute.

Said the former Blackburn Rovers manager:"I am delighted for the win, as a move forward from last season's disappointment and they (Tanjong Pagar) were really good but I thought we kept them quiet during the match."
"Overall, I am pleased with the performance and we are having a good team who work hard that we can go far from here, but let's not get too carry away since I think there are still more to be done."
