Lynn progressed to the Fourth Round of the FA Trophy at the expense of Nantwich Town who play their football two divisions below those of the Linnets.
Lynn made two changes to the starting line-up that lost to Halifax on Tuesday night with Ross Barrows and Michael Gyasi replacing Malachi Linton and the injured Munashe Sundire.
With Ken Charles cup-tied manager Tommy Widdrington added Academy players Nico Da Costa, Mitch Rasberry, and Tyler Knowles to the bench.
For much of the first half the game failed to live up to the expectations of a cup tie.
A Gold Omotayo header on 11 minutes from an Aaron Jones cross failed to trouble Andrew Wycherley in the visitors' goal.
More promising signs came on 27 minutes when Josh Barrett hit the woodwork with a long range shot and the deadlock was finally broken on 32 minutes with a neat bit of foot swapping seeing Barrett finding the bottom left corner.
Lynn's lead didn't last long, as four minutes later Dabbers' leading scorer Daniel Cockerline broke clear and lifted be ball over the on-rushing Paul Jones.
Pierce Bird had a shot in final minutes of the half but it was just wide and, truth be told, apart from the goals, neither keeper had been hard pressed.
Four minutes after the restart, Gyasi was grounded by former Wales international David Vaughan and Barrett stepped up to score from the resultant penalty, Wycherley getting a hand to the ball but unable to prevent Lynn taking the lead once again.
There were further chances for Lynn to put the game to bed with Linton firing just wide and a Barrett free kick finding the roof of the net.
Better was to come from Omotayo with a shot that hit the underside of the bar.
The final exchanges belonged to the Dabbers. In the 85th minute a cross from substitute Shaun Miller found Cockerline whose effort was bundled wide and the
resulting corner saw Bourne volley towards goal, straight at the Jones.
So, Tommy Widdrington - three games, two wins, but all results going pretty much as expected.
