Chris Henderson was next to try his luck with a header that forced a superb save.
Lynn took the lead on 13 minutes, Gash winning the ball and playing it over the top for Adam Marriott to finish.

Further chances fell to Lynn. On 20 minutes Power side footed past Hemming’s near post and then Marriott went close to completing his hat trick on 28 minutes but was denied by Hemming who managed to turn the ball away
The home side recovered and controlled the last 15 minutes of the first half. On 31 minutes Scott Wilson put in a dipping shot following Robbie Dale’s corner but the ball ended up on the roof of the net.
Harmison then got on the end of a Rhys Evans whipped cross but his header drifted past the bottom left corner.
Just before the break Dale got the better of Nathan Fox and his low shot was scrambled away by Street with the home side appealing for a penalty for a foul on Hawkins.
With four minutes of the first half remaining Kris Thackray got on the end of a ball following a corner but Street was equal to his powerful shot.
Lynn resumed their dominance in the second half ending hopes of the Blyth comeback. A Jones corner was nearly turned into his own net by Mark Waddington and then on 61 minutes Rory McAuley headed home from Aaron Jones’ corner.
