King's Lynn Town's interest in cup competitions ended when they were beaten by the better team at Nantwich.
It was a score that flattered the home side with Alex Street not forced into a great deal of action, it was just that when Nantwich had the opportunities, invariably as breakaways, they made the most of them.
Defensive errors were Lynn's undoing as the clinical finishing of The Dabbers was decisive and the skills and speed of former Northern Ireland international Steve Jones caused problems for the Lynn defence. Jones, now 39 and with his 18th club, opened the scoring in the eighth minute following a mistake by Kern Miller.
Liam Shotton put the Dabbers two up on the hour after another defensive slip had allowed Darren Thornton's run and cross to create the opportunity.
Sam Gaughran's goal, following Michael Clunan's free kick, brought the score to 2-1 and gave a glimmer of hope but two minutes later Lynn were two adrift again when Lewis Short took advantage of Linnets' missing defence.
It was the first of three goals in a five minute spell.
Shotten added his second and Nantwich's fourth with a simple goal and then Ryan Fryatt was red carded for a trip on Chris Smith which resulted in Liam Shotton completing his hat-trick from the penalty spot.

There was better news from The Walks where Lynn Reserves ran out 4-0 winners against Woodbridge Town completing their third league double of the season.
Matty Castellan, who had missed the first team coach ti Nantwich, put Lynn in front on three minutes, heading home from a corner.
The lead was doubled in the 25th minute when Danny Setchell, on for dislocated finger victim Jamie Burgess, scored from some 25 yards.
Jack Frohawk claimed the third goal before half time when his shot hit Ryan Garnham and went into the net.
Five minutes after the restatrt the scoring was completed when McQuaid's cross hit the visiting 'keeper and the post but the referee's assistant flagged that the ball had crossed the line.
Lynn might have gone nap when in the 90th minute Luis Duarte hit over when well placed following a goalmouth scramble.
The reserves were deserved winner but Woodbridge, without a number of players, were game throughout in a match played for much of the time in heavy rain.
Lynn: Simpson, Bussens (Shipp), McLeish, Castellan, Spittlehouse, Burgess (Setchell), McQuaid, Daw, Frohawk, Curson (Turvey). Subs: Setchell, Duarte, Turvey, Shipp, Burch
Booked: Setchell, Shipp. Scorers: Castellan, Setchell, Frohawk, McQuaid.
