ARGYLE'S youngsters followed up last Wednesday's victory over Torquay with the victory over lowly Yeovil that could have easily been by a larger margin.

Two successive runs, down the left flank, by Ben Purrington opened up the visiting defence but Argyle failed to make the most of the full-back's endeavor.

The young Greens finally broke through on 19 minutes when Colin Watson played the ball to Tyler Harvey who produced a sweet turn and dive from an acute angle that flew into the net via the inside of the near post.

That was the first of three goals, in a four minute spell, for Argyle with Harvey smashing a 20 yard free kick home, via the post, after a foul on Matt Lecointe.

Solomon Wheatley (pictured), who had an impressive game on the right wing, put a good ball in to Harvey who once again let go from an acute angle but this time Matt Cater parried the shot but Joshua Huchinson was on hand to fire the loose ball in to an empty net.

Yeovil pulled a goal bck on 28 minutes when a fumble by work experience goalkeeper James White saw him do well to beat out Ricky Louch's follow up, but the impressive Melchi Williamson was on hand to fire the third attempt into the roof of the net.

It was not until on the hour that Argyle notched their fourth when Lecointe's pace took him past two defenders on the angle of the box to send his drive fizzing in to the far corner of the net.

Argyle: James White, Colin Watson (Aaron Bentley 76), Ben Purrington, Kieron Asumadu-Sakyi, James Bradley (c), Nathan Summers, Solomon Wheatley, Matt Lecointe, Tyler Harvey (Louis Rooney 79), Joshua Hutchinson (Jake Miller 33), Callum Hall. Substitutes (not used): Mason Hughes, Dan Levercombe.
