Lynn made the long mid-week trip to the north-east but it was joy for Hartlepool who recorded their first home win since the opening day of the season.
Both sides made changes since their last outing. Lynn introduced Tai Fleming for his first start, along with Sonny Carey, Adam Marriott and Michael Gash with Ryan Jarvis, Simon Power and Kiaro Mitchell dropping to the bench and Cameron King omitted.
There were six changes in the Pools' side that lost to Boreham Wood including a debut for recent loan signing Luke Armstrong from Salford and 17 year old Joe Grey.
There was also a recall for keeper Ben Killip who once played for Lynn (literally, in 2014).
Lynn struggled to get out of their own half in the opening minutes but the nearest Pools came to scoring was a David Ferguson cross which evaded everyone and hit the bar and then Grey tried to get on the end of a Rhys Oates' cross, chesting the ball wide.
Lynn came more into the game and had claims for a penalty waved away when Marriott stole the ball from Timi Odusina who slipped and managed to haul down Marriott in the process.
Lynn fell behind on 21 minutes when Lewis Cass, on a season long loan from Newcastle United, played a ball in for Armstrong who forced Archie Mair into a close range save but Armstrong was on hand to score from the rebound.
Lynn's best chance of the first half fell to Marriott four minutes before the break but Killip saved low.
Pools doubled their lead on 51 minutes, Cass again the provider and Armstrong the finisher.
A triple substitution from Lynn on 58 minutes introduced more speed into the Lynn line-up but it was Mair who was next in action, doing well to deny Nicky Featherstone.
Lynn had a chance to get back into the game when Jamar Loza picked up a loose ball after an Odusina slip and squared to Marriott who could only put the ball wide from eight yards.
Lynn huffed and puffed but there was only ever going to be one winner.
