# Problems getting Rid of Duplicate Matches

I seem to have run into a huge problem in my code :
A mini game requires me to press a certain keys displayed on the screen,the problem is the background is ever changing .
So i minimised the region to a very small area and run multiple searches before sorting them in the right order.

The duplicates are found by measuring the x axis distance and if its less then 20 take the match with the most similarity score.
The problem is i am still getting duplicates if the search is run more than once, and it is essential the search runs more than once since, I am trying to minimise false matches in the area ,so that the right keys are pressed.
The code is also meant to be designed for speed with the operations being done before 10 seconds..
Code

print((distanceC(x.getX(),y.getX())))
if(distanceC(x.getX(),y.getX())<20):
print("Distance is less than 20!\n")
if (x.getScore() == y.getScore()):
xcordsFinal.append(x) #Adds it to the list to be finally sorted and put to operation.
