Unhappy Sealant for concrete pavers too glossy, help!

Hello! We just sealed our backyard concrete pavers with a poly-urethane sealant yesterday. We were told this sealant would provide a satin or close to matte finish (which is what we wanted). Unfortunately, we forgot a MAJOR detail that such a finish would be accomplished by diluting the sealant with water.

As a result our pavers now look like they've been vacuum sealed in plastic, entirely too glossy! Is there any way we can matte-down the look? Should we get it stripped and start over again?

Here is the product we used to seal them:
Versa-Look - Super Stone, Inc.

Recommendations appreciated!

I'd be inclined to try buffing one paver with a green scotch brite pad. If that gives you reasonable results you could rent a floor buffer with a scotch brite screen and make quick work of it. Use a light touch.
