Superb ’keeping from Jack Harding in the Banbury goal and a couple of mistakes by Lynn saw the visitors go down by two goals when, in terms of chances, the game should easily have been wrapped up by Lynn in the first half-hour.
Lynn had Aaron Jones taking the place of Michael Clunan in the starting line-up while the injured Ryan Hawkins was absent from the bench.
Lynn dominated the first half which saw a catalogue of scoring opportunities thwarted by man-of-the-match Harding.
In the 7th minute Ryan Jarvis picked out Adam Marriott whose effort took a deflection off Charlie Wise for a corner and two minutes later Chris Henderson shot wide.
Then on the 14th minute Harding produce the first of a number of first class saves - denying Marriott’s volley after a Gash header had created the opportunity.
Ross Barrows was looking lively going forward and his centre saw Henderson’s shot deflected away for another corner.
Marriott then saw two chances drift wide before Harding was on hand to deny him again on 27 minutes.
Six minutes later Gash attempted a low drive but once again Harding saved, diving to his left to turn the ball round his near post.
Then in the 43rd minute, against the run of play, a wayward pass from Gashin the Banbury half allowed Greg Kaziboni to run in on goal and lob Alex Street from some 25 yards.
It could have been worse for Lynn when a mix-up between Street and Rory McAuley allowed Joe Iaciofano in but Street was able to recover.
The second half saw Lynn dominate possession in the same way as the first and although they applied pressure they failed to create as many clear-cut scoring chances and when they did they found Harding unbeatable.
Ryan Fryatt fired wide following a cross from Barrows and Clunan saw his drive turned round the post by Harding.
A patient Lynn build-up saw Jones cut into the six yard box but Harding was again there to snuff out the danger.
As the half progressed the game became more open with chances at both ends Street doing well to palm away substitute’s Amer Awadh effort and Harding denying Harry Limb.
The home side made sure of the points in the 88th minute when Frazer Blake-Tracy lost possession in the Banbury half to George Nash who sent substitute Awadh clear, his pace took him past Fryatt and Barrows and into the box to chip Street.
