I am sorry but I don't think the floor will lighten and the only way to change the look is to sand off the polyurethane and restain the floor. Getting a perfect match is difficult but not impossible.

Ya unfortunately I don't think it will lighten. The only choices are really to live with it or refinish the floors in the room. Trying to again sand the 8 boards, re stain etc would probably make it stick out even worse.
