Radiopane scored four goals against Swallows FC in their match at the DStv Diski Challenge This Saturday afternoon.
Orlando Pirates scored four star goals in one game means he is four goals clear at the top of the table with 13 goals from 13 games.
A 5-1 win means the Buccaneers are already six points behind Stellenbosch in the DStv Disci Challenge standings, but the Cape side have a game in hand.
Boitumelo Radiopane, who has jumped between the first team and the Orlando Pirates reserves this season, continued his best form.
The 19-year-old scorer scored a near-perfect hat-trick in his side's 5-1 win against Swallows FC on Saturday afternoon.
Radiopane has played four games for the Buccaneers first team this season. Despite performing well at reserve level, coach Mandla Ncikazi believes the weather was "not right" to bring the youngster down.
"My general feeling is that I am a development coach who was promoted to where I am now," said Orlando Pirates assistant coach Mandla Ncikazi late last year.
"I like to use young and new players. I don't believe in recycled player panels that bring anything new. But now you have to do it and win.
"There are a lot of young people in the Orlando Pirates that we want to raise, but the process has to be perfect. The weather must be good, there's Boitumelo Radiopane, Thabiso Monyane, who are in the Olympics.
Do you use it in the current situation where you really need points? The timing has to be right because we can either promote or kill them. We have to try to protect them and if the opportunity arises, we will seize it.”
Orlando Pirates are struggling on the threshold this season as their top scorers (Deon Hotto and Kwame Peprah) have only managed to score four goals mid-season.
Is it time for Boitumelo Radiopane to be thrown into the deep end to fix the Buccaneers scoring crisis?
