QUINNS Rocks claimed the first annual Quigley Challenge Cup against Alkimos in the North Suburban Community Cricket Association one-day competition on Saturday.

The experience of the Stingrays overcame the Seahawks, who are new to the league this season.

Quinns Rocks saw out their innings on 7-229 and dismissed Alkimos for 170 to win by 59 runs at Leatherback Park.

The cup match, backed by Butler MLA John Quigley, was formed to drum up some neighbourly rivalry.

There will be two more cup matches this season.
