Sponge Crash with Mods

So I’m trying to run a 1.12.2 server with mods and sponge but when launching the server, it crashes when I have sponge installed.

Here’s the crash log.

I have the sponge version it’s asking for. https://i.imgur.com/Etz5oVG.png
As you can see I also renamed sponge to have _a at the beginning so it’s loaded first

When I type /sponge version in console without aether installed, I get this https://i.imgur.com/oGtaRab.png

I’m stuck

I have figured it out.
To those suffering with the same problem, I simply renamed Sponge to begin with _a and then put it in the folder that generates upon starting with Aether, the memory_repo folder. https://i.imgur.com/9i9bayY.png
