2016 Gibraltar Challengers B - Round 5

Entering the last round of the Challengers B, I had 1.5-2.5, so win would give a credible even score.
I was Black against David Gostelow (2013) of England, a fellow  same age as me.  As I write this two months later, I don't remember much about this game.

Let's see 19. cd5 ed5 20. e6 would have been scary, and at no time was I a threat to win this game. My opponent was leaking time however, and offered a draw, which I had no regrets in accepting. So I finished with 2 out of 5, finished 49 of 73, with a starting rank of 65, and gained 5 ELO.
