Hat-trick hero Steve Torpey fired Scunthorpe into the FA Cup second round following a comfortable win at Northwich On This Day in 2002.
In a scrappy start to the game, the visitors made much of the early play but struggled to create any clear-cut chances.
But Torpey converted an Andy Dawson cross from close range just before half-time.
He then settled Scunthorpe's obvious nerves with a far-post header after the resumption - his 13th goal of the season.
Scunthorpe goalkeeper Tom Evans denied Jimmy Quinn as the hosts tried to get back into the game.
But a penalty converted by Torpey after Lee Featherstone had been fouled by Mathew Parry settled the match.
