    Hmm, a money map.... -- --;;

    -No upgrades
    -No focus fire with mutas
    -Poor scouting
    -Killing those overlords with your scourges gave out your position
    -Should've just destroyed those hatcheries with zerglings

    Didn't watch the rest after your attack failed.
    Your partner didn't get enough gas.

    1. Everything that Skyhr said
    2. One of you should have focused fire on the drones, while the other focused fire on the Lair
    3. Never should have used those/make those scourages.

    Lings and Mutas, though creative, there are better combos. I doubt lings were worth making. You would have been better off going all mutas, Go Guards and Devourers, or the classic Hydra/Lurker/Defiler Combo.

    Rule of thumb: In a money map, always go for the Hatch/Nexus/CC rigged by the mins, he was dirt poor and the game would've been yours. Next time, if you're gonna' do that same attack, do it to the toss, because they cost more and are more easily economically crippled.
