SAFFC won their first trophy since 2009 and their fifth Singapore Cup; matching their Uniform rival Home United record.

It nearly never happen as they were make to pay for an own goal by the usually reliable Shahril Jantan as a misjudgment of a cross meant he punch it into his own net.

After that the Warriors found it hard to punch a hole in the Stags defence but as the match drag on, the Stags pull back their punches more and more as they decided to close shop so they could focus on the league title battle in 5 days time as well.

They were make to pay as Shimpei Sakurada scored from a scramble in the box from a corner.

After that, the Stags found it hard to get back on track and were waiting for the whistle to regroup but they were not given that chance as a master stroke by the soon-to-depart Richard Bok won the Warriors the cup.

He brought on forward Erwan Gunawan and the sub did not disappoint as he will notch the winner in injury-time and the Cup was going to Choa Chu Kang.

In the Third/Fourth placing, Gombak thrash Philippines side Loyola Meralco Sparks 4-0 with goals from Iqbal Hamid Hussain, Mustaqim Manzur, Fairoz Hasan and Julien Durand.
