Default Feedback On Tournament Game Featuring English Defense (Or Owen's Defense!?)

I just finished playing in a tournament here in Zimbabwe and I am in
the middle of assessing my performance. The only trouble is chess
resources here are limited so I lack the benefit of book and/or
computer analysis. I would really appreciate this forum's help with
evaluating a key game:

1.e4 b6 2.d4 Bb7 3.Nc3 e6 4.Nf3 Bb4 5.Bd3 Nf6 6.Qe2 d5 7.exd5 Qxd5 8.O-
O Qh5 9. Nb5 Na6 10. Bf4 Nd5 11. Bg3 c6 12. Nd6+ Bxd6 13. Bxd6 Nb4 14.
Be4 O-O-O 15. Bg3 Nf6 16. c4.

This was the position reached after the opening with me playing on the
White side. I felt like I had a pretty good position at this point
even though I went on to lose the game. So my question is is play up
to this point flawless on both sides? I find it hard to believe that
the reason for my defeat lies in these first 16 moves. To those of you
with access to computer analysis and theory is this line clean?
Otherwise I can begin to examine play from here onwards to find where
things went wrong. Thanks much.
