Chris Doig came in for Clayton McDonald in defence, and Lennel John-Lewis replaced Scott Neilson in the front 3.
After a slow start Turnbull put the home side in front on 20 with a powerful blast.
The lead only lasted a short while though as Hearn nodded in from close range after a terrific cross by Colbeck.
John-Lewis went off injured and Town were down to 10 men for the last 10 minutes of the first half, during which time the floolights went off in the fading light but play went on in the gloom.
10-men Town made it to half time, and the lights came back on.
The lights failed at the start of the second half, which put the game in doubt, but the game eventually restarted.
Town went in front from a short corner which was played to McLaughlin who crossed for Doig to stoop in.
Grimsby weren't unduly troubled as they saw out the game.
