Play-off hopefuls Curzon completed the double over Lynn at a windswept Tameside Stadium.
Playing against the wind in the first half Lynn fell behind on 9 minutes when Niall Cummins poked home from 6 yards after a great run and cross from Darren Thornton.
Two minute prior to that "Nash" had given warning of their abilities Sam Walker putting a half-volley over the bar.
Two further chances fell to the home side before Lynn's first shot of note on 18 minutes when Michael Frew's curling centre found Lee Stevenson but home 'keeper Hakan Burton made a diving save to push the ball away for a corner.
Conor Marshall was on the receiving end of another Frew centre on the half hour but his header was gathered by Burton.
Lynn continued to press but, losing possession from a throw in the Curzon half on 36 minutes, fell further behind when a quick passing move resulted in Alex Brown's cross being met by Joe Guest giving Street no chance.
Lynn started the second half brightly with Lee Stevenson putting a half chance wide and then a David Bell free kick found Frew but he somehow managed to shoot wide from two yards.
On 69 minutes Alex Brown scored for the home side, tapping in the rebound after Jordon Wright's shot had been parried by Street.
Lynn's misery was completed just into injury time when Cummins scored his second of the afternoon from close in after a mistake by Street.
