We'll need a lot more details like recipe and your procedure but I would not worry much. It might be a bit outside the style but it should still be good.
I am happy to be a couple points off either way and unconcerned in your range. I would be more P.O.'d if it was low.
Again more details will be needed to determine what made the difference.
