MHS quarterback Marc Walbridge kept the ball for a one-yard rushing TD in the third and JCN trailed 20-0 before getting its only touchdown of the evening.
McLouth finished the game on a 21-0 run. The Bulldogs took a 27-6 lead into the half following a 26-yard touchdown pass from Walbridge to Tim Culter.
Dailey, who finished with 66 yards on 13 carries, scored his second rushing TD in the third quarter.
Senior running back Alex Courtney reached the end zone with a three-yard score in the fourth.
