KVFC avenged an earlier loss against Worle Reserves as a hat-trick from Loiue Hallett sealed a 3-1 away win on Saturday.
Having lost 5-1 when the sides met in the cup in January, Valley were determined to set the record straight in their Weston & District League clash.
KVFC’s best opportunity of the first half came from a long forward pass over the top of the Worle defence which found Andy Vowles, who beat the last defender and keeper only to see his effort go just widee.
A back three of Beesley, Vowles and Mitchell were well-organised throughout, as Dan Andrews did a man-marking job on the dangerous Cahill.
The deadlock was broken when Hallett pounced on a loose ball, after a fumble by the Worle keeper, to tap home, but KVFC had Dimond to thank for a fine diving save after the restart.
Hallett made it 2-0 with a great strike on 65 minutes, after finding space on the edge of the box, and Valley brought on fresh legs, as Preddy, Davies and Vowles were replaced by Mogg, Richards and Langford.
Worle halved the deficit from the penalty spot, with KVFC disputing the handball decision, to set up a frantic finish.
But Hallett had the last word as he completed his treble with a wonderful strike from 25 yards to seal the three points and man of the match award.
