Lynn went one goal better than Hereford in terms of defeating Tiverton but the margin at The Walks could have been much greater as Lynn swept aside the Yellows and could easily have been five up by half time but for visiting keeper Martin Rice.
Lynn wasted no time in stating their intentions with Leon Mettam getting on the end of Tom Ward's long ball out of defence and hitting the upright on three minutes. Lynn then had appeals for a penalty turned down when Cameron Norman was grounded having got past his marker.
On sixteen minutes the deserved opening goal arrived. There might have been an element of fortune when Michael Gash's shot from the left was deflected to Craig Parker re-acting quickly at the far post who headed home.
Tiverton had a chance to level almost immediately when Jamie Price headed against hit the bar from a corner but it was Lynn who went on to dominate the half.
Rice then pulled off a number of saves with Mettam being unfortunate to see his efforts being denied by the legs and arms of the 'keeper.
The impressive Ryan Hawkins troubled the visiting defence with his runs and it was he that scored Lynn's second goal. Mettam started the move, setting up Parker who skipped past the challenge of the defender to put the through ball to Hawkins to score with ease, doubling Lynn's lead on 37 minutes.
Mettam then had the ball in the net but it was ruled offside.
Not for the first time this season, the second half didn't manage to live up to the first.
Tiverton had a couple of chances with one chance ending when Frazer Blake-Tracy produced a vital tackle to see off the danger and then Ward was on hand to put the ball out for a corner with visiting substitute Scott Rogers bearing down on goal.
Norman had the best of Lynn's chances when he worked his way into the area and his cross across goal needed the merest touch to put the ball in the net but it just evaded Gash's foot.
