when i run this file...only half of the files are moving

$sourcedir = 'C:\Users\garang\Documents\input_files\Advisory_rate'
$destdir = 'C:\Users\garang\Documents\input_files\Advisory_rate\Archive'

Get-ChildItem -File -Path $sourcedir |
Where-Object BaseName -match ' ([a-z]+_20\d{2})_\d' |
Group-Object {$Matches[1]} |
ForEach-Object {
$_.Group | Sort-Object LastWriteTime -Descending |
Select-Object -Skip 1 |
Move-Item -Destination $destdir -Force
}

i think it is unable to find year and country and only year can get results
