17th minute goal from Liam Hurst.
Lee Stevenson produced Lynn's first chance heading over Hurst's cross and then Hurst himself
gave an indication of his capabilities latching onto Street's long kick and forcing the home 'keeper to save at the expense of a corner.
From the corner Kern Miller saw his effort cleared off the line but there was no denying Hurst on 17 minutes when he got on the end of another
long ball, this time from Miller, and put his effort over home 'keeper Jamie Head.
The lead could have been doubled just after the half hour when Stevenson saw his goal bound effort cleared off the line.
The second half saw the home side take the game to Lynn and Alex Street did well to prevent a equaliser, denying the home side of four
occasions in the space of the opening twenty minutes of the second half particularly from
Connor Calcutt and Steven Gregory.

Chippenham Town 4 King's Lynn Town 1
Saturday 30th January
Chippenham took advantage of Poole Town's postponement to move top of the division as Lynn conceded four league goals in a game for the
first time this season.
An even first half saw few chances in what developed into a midfield battle. The deadlock was broken
on thirty seven minutes when Alan Griffin's forward header released leading scorer Andy Sandell whose long range shot from
some 25 yards went under the legs of a surprised Alex Street.
One down at half time, Lynn applied pressure with chances coming from free kicks - Michael Clunan forcing the home 'keeper toi punch his effort away while
Matty Castellan's header from a kick went wide.
Lynn went further behind ten minutes after the restart in controversial fashion.
From a free kick Street was grounded under a challenge from Griffin, dropping the ball.
With Street still on the ground Sandell's shot was blocked but the ball fell to Griffin who fired home from close range.
Lynn protested, appealing for a foul, Lee Stevenson getting booked for his troubles.
Lynn's presure was rewarded when Lee Stevenson pulled a goal back on 74 minutes when the home
defence failed to clear a cross from the right.
Lynn looked the most likely to score but on 82 minutes the Bluebirds made the game safe when Michael Pook's long throw found
Sandell who spun and scored a stunning goal from some forty yards.
To complete a misetable afternoon for Lynn substitute Oli Taylor headed home the fourth three minutes from time.

Wroxham 1 King's Lynn Town Reserves 2
Tuesday 26th January
King's Lynn Town Reserves overcame holders Wroxham in the Norfolk Senior Cup thanks to two goals from Dylan Edge.
Lynn fell behind on 15 minutes when former Linnet Jamie Forshaw turned in Garrod's low cross.
Forshaw had the chance to double the lead ten minutes later but somehow managed to miss an open goal when clean through.
Lynn tried to get back into the game, their best chance of the first half falling to Jacek Zielonka who forced Wroxham 'keeper Elliot Pride into a stunning save.
Zielonka tried his luck again soon after the restart, bursting past another former Linnet, Jackson Ramm, but seeing his shot saved by Pride's legs.
It began to look as if it was not going to be Lynn's night as Dylan Edge, on the recieving end of a build up from Zielonka and Liam Fryatt, saw his effort well saved by Pride.
Lynn got the equaliser they deserved soon after when Edge scored off the inside of the post.
A Liam Fryatt effort in the dying minutes went narrowly wide sending the game into extra time.
Alex Street did well to keep out a Wroxham free kick early in extra time and then in the last minute of the first half Edge finished off Zielonka's set-up
to put Lynn into the semi-final against Dereham Town at The Walks.
