“When I got the goal it was a huge relief,” Boe said.
With the win, the Roughriders improve to 2-4 on the season, while Sequim falls to 1-5.
“It's what makes rivalry games so fun,” Port Angeles coach Scott Moseley said of Thursday's game.
“A tight game, playing in front of a large home crowd and a pressure-packed, early season must-win game for both sides.”
Port Angeles took the lead in the 25th minute when Brittany McBride was taken down in the penalty box to set up a penalty shot that McBride buried in the left side of the goal.
“I just thought back to practice — nice and simple to the side, and put it in the back of the net,” McBride said.
Sequim equalized just before halftime after a scramble for the ball ended up in the Riders' goal.
The game seesawed back and forth in the second half, with neither team getting the breakthrough goal.
Although Port Angeles ended up out-shooting the Wolves 16-5, the second half's most dangerous shot came from Sequim's Maeve Harris — 25-yarder that was tipped over the bar by Rider goalkeeper Hayley Baxley.
With 10 minutes left, a flurry of shots by Port Angeles signaled a momentum shift — Madison St. George, Kylee Jeffers and McBride just missed close range attempts.
Finally, Boe, the Riders' leading scorer, scored the game-winner with two minutes left in regulation.
Moseley was generally pleased with his team's play.
“We did some things really well and we struggled in some areas,” Moseley said.
“Better quality passing and finishing are needed if we want to compete with the top teams in the league, but winning this game is huge for the girls, and moves us into fifth place in the Olympic League.”
Moseley named Boe and McBride as offensive players of the game.
Emma Moseley was named the Riders' top transition player for her passing and control of the midfield, and Karina Bohman earned defensive player of the game honors with another quality game in the back.
