Argyle Under-18s completed a tremendous second-half comeback win against Exeter City in the Devon Derby on Saturday morning.

Two goals down at the break against their local rivals, the Young Pilgrims rallied and turned the game around in the second period. All three goals scored for Argyle came after the break, with Freddie Issaka, Joe Hatch and Lewis Colwell the scorers.

Argyle took a while to grow into the game, offering the hosts many chances to take the lead within the first ten minutes.

Dan Holman did well to keep the Exeter frontline at bay, making some fantastic saves in the early stages.

However, eventually the pressure on Holman’s goal grew too much and Exeter took the lead through their number nine.

A quick free-kick over the top caught the Pilgrims out and whilst Holman was able to keep out the initial shot, he was unable to get to the rebound meaning the Grecians took the lead.

The deficit was doubled just minutes later when a rare mistake from Holman saw him lose control of the ball and then bring down Exeter’s striker inside the area in an attempt to win it back, forcing the referee to point to the spot.

Exeter’s forward converted and what was previously a slow start has now turned into a nightmare beginning for the Greens.

Going into half-time 2-0 down will have been an unfamiliar feeling for Darren Way’s side who have been so used to winning in recent weeks, and it was clear it would take a major effort for Argyle to get anything out of this game.

What was also clear was that the team knew it when they came back out for the start of the second half.
