Knebworth's Lamacraft went close with Damion Williamson making the save of the game.
But Turl put Town ahead after 59 minutes, and Young made it four in the 80th minute.
Malins completed the scoring when his overhead kick was deflected in.
Attfield said: "We got punished for two bad mistakes but we showed good character to turn the game around and in the end we could have won by a few more."
