Clinton's Madalyn Freitas is congratulated after scoring in Thursday's Division 3 district final against Milan.

MILAN — Following Thursday’s 6-3 loss to Milan in the Division 3 girls soccer district final, Clinton senior Madalyn Freitas couldn’t remember her first goal.

Who could blame her? It had been 1,168 days, 194 goals, 56 games, a pandemic and a school transfer since she found the back of the net for the first time in a high school game.

“I think if I had my sophomore season I could’ve bumped myself up (the goal charts) a little bit,” Freitas said. “I could only work with the seasons that I had. With what I had, I think I made the most of it. I’m pretty proud of myself.”

As she should be.

From her first game on March 22, 2019, where she scored four goals and added two assists in an 11-0 mercy of Dundee while playing for Tecumseh, to Thursday’s district defeat where she scored a goal against the Big Reds, Freitas scored 195 goals.

Her 195 goals make her tied for fifth all-time in MHSAA history, 33 shy of the record set by Libby Munoz of Leland from 2013-16.

It’s not a stretch to believe she would’ve broken the goals record, along with Hannah Thompson of Schoolcraft, had she not missed the sophomore season due to COVID.

Clinton's Madalyn Freitas kicks a penalty kick for a goal, giving her 70 on the season during Thursday's Division 3 MHSAA district final at Milan.

Along with her 195 goals, Freitas had 27 assists to give her 222 career points, which will be tied for sixth all-time in MHSAA history.

“She has that gift to score,” said Clinton head coach Marla Erickson. “But, she is also such a team player. She’s such a hard worker and builds positive energy around her.

“Her gift is scoring, but her gift is also moving the ball and finding the players. We’ll miss her.”
