REGEX017 - Subtraction
This is a regex golf problem. You have to write a regex that matches all lines from one list and none from the second one. Matching is implemented as Perl's m//, so it's not a precise match. E.g. to match "SPOJ" you don't need regex /^SPOJ$/ since it's enough to write /PO/ or /J/.
The regexes submitted should be compatible with Perl regular expressions (version 5.20.1).
Score is calculated as follows: it's equal to the length of your regex and for every line from the first list that's not matched by your regex X points are added to your score. Analogically, for every line from the second list that's matched by your regex X points are added to your score. The lower your score is, the better. X often equals 10 but it's different in some problems. Check below this problem's X value.

Match all of these...
And none of these...
X = 10
