Skiverton scored on 10 and 81 minutes to cancel out Simon Rusk's leveller and moved Yeovil a step closer to promotion.
Yeovil arrived at York Street looking to extend their advantage at the top of League Two to four points and they were given the perfect platform on 10 minutes when Skiverton rose highest at a corner to head them ahead.
Boston produced the more fluent football and their attacking endeavour was rewarded with a Rusk leveller on 23 minutes, but the goal had a touch of fortune about it.
The ball fell to Rusk on the edge of the box and he lashed his shot goalwards, with the effort finding its way into the net off of the heel of Kevin Amankwaah.
That was not the fortunate aspect, though, as Yeovil were convinced the effort should have been chalked off for offside, as Daryl Clare appeared to be interfering with play as he was stood no more than a yard in front of keeper Chris Weale, but the goal was allowed to stand.
Boston gleaned confidence from the goal and had an effort ruled out just after the restart, with Clare rightly adjudged offside on this occasion.
Clare was proving the main attacking threat and he should have fired Boston ahead on the hour, but he took an age to line up a shot from six yards and Adam Lockwood got across the line to make a telling block.
Boston were made to pay for their wastefulness when Skiverton pounced on a loose ball to hand Yeovil a further three points.Kidderminster boosted their hopes of survival and dented Darlington's promotion hopes with a 2-0 win in the North East.
The visitors are scrapping for their lives and their perseverance paid off, as two goals in the last ten minutes from Dean Keates and Mark Rawle earned them a vital three points.
Bristol Rovers came from a goal down to earn a 2-1 win at Notts County.
Glynn Hurst put the hosts ahead on nine minutes, but an own goal before the interval from Julien Baudet was the start of the fightback.
Rovers took confidence from the goal and claimed victory when Richard Walker netted on 53 minutes.
