Murcielagos recovered their composure and kept Admiral at bay for the rest of the first half.
Admiral upped their pace after the interval and on 50 minutes White’s pinpoint pass was volleyed home by Alfie Francis.
Ten minutes later Liam Magwood’s excellent through pass found Bourne whose finish was precise and lethal.
Bourne then turned provider after 65 minutes to create a goal for Mariusz Serwin to make it 4-0.
Murcielagos grabbed a goal back but Admiral held firm to progress through to and land a tie against Magical Vegas.
