Sanna Khanh Hoa narrowed the gap four minutes before the interval through Lam Ti Phong.
Lynch then grabbed his second of the evening right at the hour mark as Zarour Chaher scored twice in three minutes for Sanna Khanh Hoa to draw level at 3-3.
But Lynch completed his hat-trick on 84th minute before he was red carded two minutes later.
Elsewhere, Hoang Anh Gia Lai fell to a 3-1 loss to Saion FC.
