You are really close! I just see two issues:

  • a "dash" in the pattern is represented by an underscore ("_") instead of a hyphen
  • you don't need to encode any symbols other than period (".") and underscore ("_")

The challenge won't actually notice if you fix the second issue. Fix the first one and you'll pass.
