The Spartans went swift and hard against Ikon Allah to grab their first win of the season.
The Tornadoes never envisaged that their day would end in quagmire, when Emeriojake scored Heartland's first goal in just 6 minute of the game.
Afeez Mohammed made things worse, by extending the lead  before the half time break. Confused and completely devastated, Tornadoes summed up courage in the 2nd half to part with a consolation goal.
