The Linnets broke the deadlock in the 62nd minute when Ryan Hawkins played a precision pass for Michael Gash to find the back of the net.

It wasn’t long before Hawkins took centre stage himself when the youngster doubled Lynn’s lead with a well-struck shot three minutes later.

Midfielder Michael Clunan converted from the penalty spot following a foul on Craig Parker.

Hawkins completed the scoring with the best goal of the night in the 90th minute after a wonderful curling strike from just outside the box.

The home side played some delightful stuff in the second period and Hawkins could have easily helped himself to a hat-trick with another effort coming back off the post.
