Giant killers BJ Foundation and Niger Tornadoes Feeders created the biggest upsets of the 2015 Federation Cup Round of 16 played on Wednesday they dumped Heartland and Dolphins out of the competition in Makurdi and Ado Ekiti respectively.
Heartland won the competition back to back in 2011 and 2012 and after two disappointing years in competition, they were hoping to bounce back in impressive fashion in 2015 edition but were shown the exit door by ambitious B J Foundation at the Aper Aku Stadium, Makurdi.
The Naze Millionaires got their goals through John Ibeh and Ebere Odiche in the 30th and 55th minutes but that didn't deter the giant killers who went ahead to score three goals.
In Ado Ekiti Dolphins frittered away many scoring chances that would have made them to win the game easily against Niger Tornadoes Feeders at the Oluyemi Kayode Stadium, Ado Ekiti and were made to rue the missed chances during the penalty shoot-outs.

Omoh Johnson netted for the Premier League side but the giant killers from Minna found their way back into  game when they got the  equalizer and  eventually triumphed on penalties.
