White played a speculative sac of both rooks which could have been refuted by 18...Rg8! (taking advantage of the rook and bishop under attack on f5 and g5 respectively).

Instead, black took on f5, allowing white to push through e6, and when she then didn't find 19...0-0! (only move), the game was over.

I should mention that the first rook "sacrifice" wasn't a sacrifice at all, but a blunder. After committing said blunder, I felt I had no choice, but to to go for the speculative sacrifice of the second rook.
