IAFL 2 team Donegal Derry Vipers lost heavily in a preseason game to the Carrickfergus Knights of the SBC on 6 March 2016. Despite the heavy defeat there were positives, especially Running Back Derm Brown breaking free of the Knights defense to score a 50 yard Touchdown. The experience galvanized the Vipers and focused then for what turned out to be a 6-0 winning regular season.
