Fourth game in the club tournament

This game was a bit troublesome. My opponent got hung up on a few moves around move 12 and spent too much time thinking about them. Around move 15 I had almost 50 minutes (out of 60) left on my clock and he had barely 5. At that point I was convinced I would win and I overlooked a few good moves. My opponent sacrificed a knight for an attack that never materialized and after that I just forced exchanges until the time ran out. 

I'm not sure if I handled to opening in a good way. I chose not to take the pawn on e4 out of paranoia, not sure if that was the right call. I tried playing some sort of King's Indian here, but the game got a bit weird and I never really needed to do anything interesting.
