Erick Kapaito has beaten Gor Mahia striker Jacques Tuyisenge to the 2018 Kenya Premier League Golden Boot.

The Kariobangi Sharks forward rounded off the season with 16 goals, just one shy of his former teammate Masoud Juma, who scooped the same award in 2017 season.

Kapaito scored in Shark’s 1-1 draw against Chemelil Sugar to finish one goal above Tuyisenge, who was silent on the final day of the season as champions K'Ogalo succumbed to a 1-0 home defeat against Tusker FC in Thika.

With Kapaito snatching the gong on the final day, he becomes the second player from Sharks to have won the prestigious award.
