Fence staining issue

Hey, I'm not a professional painter, but I am a professional drywaller and didn't want to ask a bunch of DIYers this question so hopefully someone here can help me out.

I just stained my fence, about 100 feet of fence. It is supposed to match my back 80' of fence installed by the subdivision.... Well I got the right color, double checked. Forgot to get semi-solid and instead got the semi-transparent... Can I now get the semi-solid and just spray right over the top of the semi-transparent and have it match? Or is it going to turn out dark since it has so much stain on it?

Thanks for the help.

Try a sample area on one or two boards and see what happens. Do not know if a de-glosser would do the trick if you cannon get the solid to match up.
