The game was only 15 minutes old when striker Ian Lee tapped home after great work by Malcolm Morien.
Redhouse responded with an equaliser on 40 minutes from a terrific header by Strachan
The second half started like the first with Blyth dominating and once Morien smashed a 25-yard shot into the roof of the net the floodgates opened.
Morien scored a spectacular 30-yard free kick then with ten minutes remaining John Amos scored with a glancing header.
Redhouse could have scored two late goals but Matty Crooks made two great saves.
