ARGYLE turned on the second-half style to overcome a strong Cullompton Rangers side in the Carlsberg South-West Peninsula League on Tuesday evening.
Cullompton started the game very well and forced two excellent saves from Michael Cooper before the deadlock was broken from Argyle’s first purposeful attack of the evening.
Ben Musslewhite threaded a delicious pass to Ryan Law and his early cross was perfect for the near-post run of Klaidi Lolos, who converted with customary composure to give Argyle the lead.
Lolos was a threat all evening and went close again before Ollie Tomlinson fired a shot just past the post. The visitors, however, were also a danger and possibly should have equalised with a chance just before half-time.
Argyle stepped up the gas after the break and doubled the lead when a lovely touch from Lolos gave him the room to curl a fine finish past the Cullompton custodian.
There was a surge of confidence through the Pilgrim ranks and a super reverse pass from Jarvis Cleal ended with a foul on Aaron Goulty, who picked himself up to convert the penalty.
A well-earned win was sealed by a second from Goulty, latching on to a pass by Tom Purrington to lift a clever finish beyond the advancing goalkeeper.
Argyle: Michael Cooper; Kieran Dyer (Isaac Burdon 70), Ryan Law, Tom Purrington, Ollie Tomlinson, Michael Peck, Aaron Goulty, Adam Randell, Ben Musslewhite (Jude Boyd 80), Klaidi Lolos, Jarvis Cleal (Rio Garside 70). Substitutes (not used): Harry Townsend (GK).
