Great effort! Here is a list of items to fix:
- add missing colon after first name group
- replace \t with \s as whitespace between first name and score
- add missing + after score character set to allow for multiple digits
- change 'data' to 'string' in
- add missing ) to end of
- add missing question marks to "?P" group syntax
- correct group names to
- remove wrapper group
- add missing
\win first_name group
Post back if you need more help! Good luck!!
