BANGOR, Maine — Christian Corneil and Anthony Capuano got to relive a few memories on Tuesday night at Husson University’s Winkin Complex.

Corneil and Capuano are former Bangor High School, Senior League World Series and American Legion teammates who have found some success this spring after transferring and debuting for their new schools.

Capuano transferred to the University of Southern Maine from the University of Maine, and Corneil moved on from USM to Bangor’s Husson University.

USM beat Husson 17-3 on Tuesday.

The two ex-Rams enjoyed seeing each other and are happy with their decisions to transfer.

“It was good to see him. I hadn’t seen him in a while,” said Corneil.

Capuano said it was a “tough decision” to leave UMaine.

“I met a lot of people and I enjoyed my teammates, but it was the best decision I could have made,” he said. “I really wanted an opportunity to play, and I’ve had that this year, and I’m really trying to embrace it the best way I can.

“I really love [the University of] Southern Maine. It’s a great place to be. I’m having a lot of fun. My teammates have been very welcoming as has the coaching staff. I love coach [Eddie] Flaherty and his staff,” he added.

Corneil said “you have to do what is best for yourself. I have four years of eligibility, and I want to be able to use them fully.

“We had a great team at [the University of] Southern Maine and the chemistry was good. But the [better] fit for me was to come back and be a hometown kid. I’m glad I’m back.”

Capuano was on the University of Maine’s roster as a freshman a year ago but never appeared in a game. He is the starting first baseman for the nationally-ranked Huskies.

Corneil is the regular center fielder for Husson after sitting out last season. He played in 15 of USM’s 56 games in 2013 and had one hit in 12 at-bats.

Corneil and Capuano were two of the catalysts behind Bangor’s berth in the SLWS championship game in 2010.

Capuano is hitting .265 with two doubles and 12 runs batted in. He has committed just two errors in 166 chances.

Corneil is hitting .342, which is best among Eagles with at least 40 at-bats. His three triples, 11 stolen bases and .566 slugging percentage are tops, and he is tied for first in total bases with 43 and homers with three.

He has handled 52 chances without an error.

Corneil attended Husson last year but elected to focus on his studies and getting settled in before returning to baseball this spring.

Capuano said he got off to a good start on USM’s spring trip to Florida.

“With the warm weather, it’s always fun to play down there,” he said. “There was a big adjustment period when I got back, and I was a little shaky, but I’m trying to turn that around now.

“I’m working on relaxing at the plate. I can be pretty uptight, and I always try to hit the ball as hard as I can and that sometimes can be a downfall,” he added.

Corneil said he has benefitted from doing “a lot of weight training” and playing in the Portland Twilight League last summer.

“I I tried to get my swing back so I could come back here and perform,” he said.

Flaherty and Husson coach Jason Harvey have been pleased with their transfers.

“Anthony has been a real plus for our program,” said Flaherty. “He’s a class act. He’s a big left-handed hitter and, as a freshman, he’s had his ups and downs. But as time goes on, he’ll do more and more for us.”

Harvey said Corneil is a big plus.

“He’s a center fielder who can track down balls. Offensively, he has been swinging the bat real well, and he has some speed, so he creates havoc on the bases,” he said. “He has been a good plus in the lineup.”
