REAL Kakamora striker Joseph Hiri is currently leading the Golden Boot race of the 2017 Solomon Cup Tournament.
Hiri bagged five goals from three matches played since the start of the competition.
He scored his highest number of goals in one match against Renbel Avaiki Chiefs in their opening group match.
If he continues to maintain the lead by scoring in their remaining match against Malaita and onto the next stage of the competition, it is most likely he will be the tournament’s golden boot winner.
However, the probabilities of concluding this competition with the highest of goals remains wide open as each provincial team still has matches left to play, giving other players the chances of extending their goal counts.
The tournament group matches nearly ends and other top contenders of the tournament are also trying their best to score goals as much as possible to snatch the top award.
Five other possible contenders for the golden boot race are closing in on the race.
They are David Tome of Honiara, Robert Tanavoqa of Western Turtles, Clement Baegeni of Malaita Eagles, all with four goals while Kennedy Watemae of Central Shields and Lyton Fiualea of Malaita Eagles sits on the fifth and sixth position with three goals each.
