Evolution Riddle 1.10

Hello there.

I am stuck on the Evolution Riddles 1.10.

Though confined to my first a person might be,
He may yet use my first to enter a plea.
My second will tell you how much something will cost,
But if you move too slowly, this game you’ll have lost.
My third is a forceful way to get through,
And also can be found accompanying you.
My sum is two more than these parts – how mysterious.
Yet my riddle’s complete – why yes, I am serious.

Anybody have a clue as to what this could be???

Pentagon is the first thing that jumps to mind, although I am not quite sure how this answer would fit with the third part of the riddle.

Though confined to my first a person might be,
He may yet use my first to enter a plea.
>>You can be confined to a pen, or you can write with a pen.

My second will tell you how much something will cost,
But if you move too slowly, this game you’ll have lost.
>>A tag tells you how much something costs. And in the game of tag if you are slow, you lose

My third is a forceful way to get through,
And also can be found accompanying you.
>> Don't know how to get the word 'on' from these clues.

My sum is two more than these parts – how mysterious.
Yet my riddle’s complete – why yes, I am serious.
>>A pentagon has five sides yet there were only three parts to the riddle. That is why the sum is two more than these parts.

You are a genius!!!!  and you have just answered the question that I have been stuck on since half seven this morning!!  ie 7 hours.

watch this space though as there are 25 questions in each round and 5 rounds, so I am bound to be asking more questions as the forum on the site doesn't give too much help to most of the questions.

Thanks for the ego boost. However, I am only a genius in the mornings. It is 9:30 am (or half ten) where I am right now. I get dumber as the day goes on. :-)
