Linnets’ owner Stephen Cleeve was presented with the team-of-the-month award prior to the game but the notorious omen of ill-fortune failed to stop Lynn
deservedly defeating their play-off rivals to secure second spot in the league and home advantage in the league play-offs.
Lynn made one change to the starting line-up that drew with Needham Market with Ryan Hawkins coming in for the unavailable Michael Clunan.
Stourbridge made one change to the team that drew with Rushall on Monday with Aaron Forde coming in for George Forsyth - Forde one of three regular first team players who missed the Rushall game through injury. The other two, Leon Broadhurst and Luke Benbow were named on the bench.
Lynn, with the strong wind behind them started brightly with Hawkins testing James Wren in the home goal with a wind assisted 25 yarder in the first minute.
Rory McAuley won the ball on 5 minutes but having got the better of three players shot well wide.
Rob Thompson-Brown had the first effort of note for the Glassboys, his free kick forcing a diving save from Street.
A Michael Gash free kick on 24 minutes hit Wren’s post from some 25 yards and ran along the goal line before going out.
Lynn took the lead on 41 minutes when a fine three man move which saw Chris Henderson collect the ball and pass into the path of Ross Barrows whose first time cross was finished by Adam Marriott from six yards - Lynn’s 100th goal of the season (all competitions).
Stourbridge had a good chance two minutes after the break, Thompson-Brown in the box laying the ball off to Greg Mills who fired over.
Lynn added a second goal on 63 minutes, Ryan Jarvis playing in Gash who squared the ball across the face of goal for Marriott to tap in at the back post
Stourbridge, who had scored in all their previous home league games, hit back on 70 minutes with a stunning goal from former Lynn loanee Mills who cut inside before crashing home a 20 yard thunderbolt.
But in the closing stages it was Lynn who had the chances.
On 82 minutes Wren produced a point blank save to deny Ryan Jarvis a close range header and then on 90 minutes, Marriott robbed defender Aaron Hayden but then fired wide of an open goal.
