WHAT a homecoming it was for Shane O'Bree on Saturday.A massive gate created a finals-like atmosphere at Beaufort as the Crows' favourite son capped his 100th match with a stirring victory over a Bungaree side sporting former Collingwood teammate Simon Prestigiacomo.O'Bree's return to the field oozed class.The 32-year-old started in the midfield, collected some telling possessions, and when given space, delivered some bullet passes to fellow Crows.As fatigue set in, O'Bree floated forward in the second half.He was a little quiet in the third term, but opened the last with a bang.His left-foot shot from deep in the pocket lifted a vocal home crowd, and his second seven minutes later essentially put the margin beyond the Demons' reach.His third major was far less convincing. After snatching a grab about 30m from goal, O'Bree wearily trudged back to his mark, looking as though he would dish-off to a nearby teammate.However, he mustered the energy to take the shot, which curled from left to right, clipping the goalpost on the way through.The umpire thought otherwise, and signalled a goal."It was very lucky," O'Bree conceded after the match."The goal umpire was very generous. I thought it might have shaved (the post), but it has gone through now so I'll take it."Prestigiacomo's take on the goal was a little different, questioning O'Bree's honesty."He cheated, and kicked a goal which wasn't a goal," he said with a smile.The pair's on-field battles were limited, with Prestigiacomo playing most of the match up forward.He booted two goals, both in the first term, to almost equal his career tally of three in 233 games with the Magpies.Prestigiacomo found it hard to get into the match while anchored up forward, but was strong in the contest when the Demons thrust forward.He briefly went into the ruck in the final term, and even laid a tackle on his great mate.O'Bree was cheered from the ground when the final siren rang, even making time to sign a couple of autographs before retreating to the rooms for a rousing rendition of the club song."It's just a privilege to play with my local club that I had never played a senior game of football for," O'Bree, who sported number 11, said."When I kicked my first goal it was a bit of a buzz. It was nearly as good as kicking a goal at the MCG with a full house."O'Bree was full of praise for the Crows."They are a bunch of goers and if they keep working together like that, they will win a lot of games and you never know what they can do with finals," he said. Prestigiacomo, who was a little ginger after the final siren, loved his first outing in the heart of country footy."The body is not going as well as the mind wishes it did," he said."You can hear every individual comment, and you cop a couple of sledges, which is all part of the game playing local country footy."
