"The lads kept the ball well and we restricted our opponents to few chances which meant we effectively had the game won inside the opening 45 minutes."
Although lying just a place below Oak Villa in the table, going in to this game, Mousehole were not able to cope with the quality of the hosts' performance.
After James Hoblin slotted home a 10th minute opener, Oak Villa continued to dominate until the final whistle.
In the 16th minute Kidd fired home from 15 yards to double the lead and before the half was out Dave Evans added a further two goals, both with excellent strikes from outside the box, to effectively end the game as a contest.
Oak Villa swift attacking play was particularly evident in their fifth goal five minutes into the second half when their goalkeeper Andy Trott played an early ball upfield to Hoblin who flicked it on for Kidd to drive home from 18 yards.
Kidd completed his first Peninsula hat-trick, just past the hour mark, when he slid the ball home from close range after Hoblin's goalbound shot had been blocked.
Callington Town...2 Porthleven...2
TOWN might have taken their unbeaten run to four games but they will have been disappointed to drop two points after throwing away a two-goal lead at the Ginsters Marshfield Parc.
All looked rosey for the home side after Port had twice transgressed in their own penalty area to give Ryan Lucassi the opportunity to successfully convert both penalties inside the first 25 minutes.
Port gained a stroke of luck, eight minutes later, that brought them back into the game as the ball was deflected on to the home crossbar for Dan Magor to flick the ball into the net.
The second half was a difficult affair to watch for the loyal home fans and it got worse when Jowan Shainberg fired the Fishermen level. But Callington were given the ideal chance to steal an unlikely win on 85 minutes when the referee awarded them a third penalty.
Unfortunately for Town, and Lucassi, Port goalkeeper Bryan Scoffin was equal to the task as he tipped the spot-kick around the post and the chance had gone.
CSWPL DIVISION ONE EAST
Okehampton Argyle...5 Plymstock Utd...1
THIS proved to be a disappointing afternoon for the U's who for long periods matched their hosts in most departments before finally capitulating in the last half hour.
On a heavy pitch it was the visitors who made the more encouraging start and Danny Murdoch, making a welcome return after a three-match ban was unlucky to see his first time effort just clear the crossbar.
Luke Alden then tested visiting 'keeper Paul Pethick before the home side opened the scoring on 15 minutes. A miscued header by Lewis Young let in James Jackson who ran on to drive confidently past Pethick.
The visitors approach play certainly matched that of their hosts but they lacked a cutting edge and with the interval approaching they fell further behind when the ball fell to Jackson who placed his shot well wide of Pethick.
The second period began with the visitors in the ascendancy and they were rewarded on the hour when a miscued shot from Matt Hill fell kindly for Aaron Hulme to slide the ball past Craig Mulholland.
This should have been the signal for the U's to up the anti but instead it proved to be the start of a calamitous 30 minutes in which they conceded three more goals.
The first arrived five minutes later when a superb through ball by Steve Madge sent Jackson away to complete his hat-trick with Alden adding to the U's misery on 70 minutes.
Jackson then completed a personal best of four goals, with three minutes remaining, when his shot from the edge of the penalty area took a wicked deflection off Rob Dicken to completely wrong-foot Pethick.
