Lynn's interest in the FA Cup ended with Ashton United winning at The Walks for the first time in four attempts.
Despite the match seeing just the one goal there were chances at both ends and but for some poor finishing and very good defending the score might have been much greater.
Although Lynn were playing a club from a division higher there was little evidence of this in much of the play and a draw might have been a fair result.
It was clear going into the second half that it would take something special to break the deadlock and that arrived in the
72nd minute from substitute Ramirez Howarth, a former Blackburn Under 23 player, who was making his Robins' debut.
The match opened with the visitors having the early chances. Dom McHale drove into the box on 4 minutes but his endeavours were blocked by Jones. On 12 minutes McHale again had a curling effort but this time it went narrowly wide.
Lynn's first chance on note came on 17 minutes Rory McAuley getting on the end of Michael Clunan's corner and heading inches wide.
Lynn began to take control, a Ryan Jarvis cross was just out of the reach of Michael Gash and McAuley again went close with a header.
A good move involving Ryan Hawkins and Gash ended with the ball going to Craig Parker but his sidefooted effort lacked sufficient pace to test Luke Pilling in the visitor's goal.
Hawkins then tried a long range shot which was parried away by Pilling for a corner with the first half drawing to a close.
The second period began in much the same vein as the first with the Robins getting an opportunity on 53 minutes McHale and Chadwick combining with the latter trying to curl it the ball into the far left corner.
The same duo linked up again on 58 minutes with Chadwick curling the wide.
Just after the hour Alex Street had to alert to cut out McHale's flick from Bradley Jackson's drilled ball.
At the other end two chances fell to Lynn in a matter of minutes. A cross from Frazer Blake-Tracy was headed wide by Gash and then Gash set up Hawkins whose effort was cleared off the line by Lewis Baines.
The deadlock was broken on 72 minutes when Chadwick laid of the ball to Ramirez who provided a wonder strike, curling the ball into the top corner.
Lynn laid siege to the Robin's goal with Pilling pulling off saves to deny Hilliard with a block on the line on 81 minutes and then another good save from Gash seven minutes later.
A last minute Lynn corner saw Alex Street join in the action but it wasn't to be Lynn's day.
