From what I could see....rudder didn't have anything to do with it...
It looked like you had too much airspeed............you gotta learn to slow that puppy down!!

From what I could see in the camera frame, when you throttle up from close to stalling (you pulled up, then throttled up), the plane started to torque to the left, which is a common occurrence. Now, after the plane left the frame, you may have bumped the rudder, but I suspect you were simply a victim of prop torque. I always teach my students when they decide to go around and try again, always add throttle before pulling up. Pulling up first puts the plane dangerously close to stalling, which aggravates the torquing condition you saw. And in most planes, adding throttle will cause the plane to rise.

You stalled it! The airspeed would have been fine if you didn't pitch it up so much....Rudder wasn't the issue, most planes fall to the left when they stall. I love the video...Its goes off screen in then the THUD! I was rolling. I am quite sorry for the loss though...
