“We’ve got to be stronger than that. I’m not going to accept that as an excuse,” Yeo said.

Added Kyle Brodziak: “You can’t get rattled and let it change the course of the whole game. We’ve got to learn to deal with those situations better. This is a frustrating one. Everyone felt like we were ready. Clearly we weren’t. We just couldn’t get anything going.”
