Today was my first BJJ tourny. I lost. Let's breakdown why.

Today was my first BJJ tourny.  I tapped to an armbar with about 45 seconds left in my match.  Here's the vid, let's break it down.  I'm in the blue. *edit* if you don't want to hear my brother's fiance freak out (this was her first time seeing BJJ) watch it with the sound off lol

So a few things:

1) I was so fucking gassed by the time I got caught in the last armbar.  I need to do something about that.

2) My guard passing still stinks.  The opening was there and I just didn't execute.  I need to train long enough that doing technique is my instinct, and not something I have to think about.

3) Can someone explain how he got 2 points when he very briefly got my back?  I thought you had to hold it for 3-4 seconds.  Was it because he got the hooks in?

Overall I am proud of myself for putting up a solid fight, but disappointed in my results.  I obviously need to work on getting a flow to my game, and nail down the technique so I don't have to think and I need to work on my cardio like it's my job.

What else do you see BE?  What did I do wrong?  What did I do right?  Let's make my game stronger BE.  You guys are the best MMA community on the net imo, so thanks in advance for any insight.
