    Camp Pendleton has reclaimed the title of best in the west when it comes to football.

    The 1st M-L-G beasts took on the Rhinos from 29 Palms during a home game Saturday.

    After a scoreless 1st half, a touchdown from #3 Jarvis Foster finally puts some points on the board.

    The Rhinos countered with two touchdowns 

    A second touchdown and a field goal clinched it for the beasts who won the game 14 to 12.

    Coach Marvin Hill says he couldn't be more proud of his team.

    "This year we worked harder. We recruited a lot of guys. A lot of our guys couldn't play they're deployed right now. We've been training hard since January 20th and here we are December 11th on top of the chart," he said.

    The victory also gives Camp Pendleton major bragging rights over their gridiron archrivals

    "This win means a lot, not just to us but to the base. 29 Palms has been beating us since 2006 was the last time we won. We've lost the last three years. We finally came out, we came together as a team after starting one and two to win the championship, it's a great feeling I'm on cloud nine," said Hill.

    Hill says the Beasts prevailed because of the team's strong defense, constant pressure and shutting down the Rhinos' passing game.

    He'll be coaching a new team next season. He's just gotten orders to MCAS Miramar.
