The home team eventually edged home by 16 shots to 15.
The Scunthorpe rink that travelled to Lincoln, made up of Jackie Pettitt, June Tomlinson, Vicki Watts and Margaret Dargue, found their opponents playing on their own green a real tough call.
Lincoln powered their way in to an early 15-0 lead and showed no let up as they continued to produce some superb bowls.
By the halfway point of the match, the home rink had nearly disappeared from sight having extended their advantage to 30 clear shots.
The Scunthorpe ladies tried extremely hard to stem the flow of shots being scored by their opponents but could not make any real impression on the scoreboard, losing by 46 to five shots.
That gave Lincoln an overall victory of 61 to 21 shots and secured them a place in the next round of this prestigious competition.
Scunthorpe A will hope to do better when they face Lincoln B to try to progress further.
