Default Bowtie2 exact match and same length


I have 8 fastq files with small RNA sequencing data and I would like to allign the sequences to a reference (.fa), thereby removing the sequences that do not allign perfectly to the reference sequences. However, the condition is that the perfect alligned seqeunces have the same length as the reference sequences to which they were alligned to. Example (not the real data, but to show what I mean):

Ref sequence (.fa):

sample sequences (.fastq):

Expected output from bowtie (.sam):

This is the command I used:
bowtie2 -L 6 -i S,0,0.5 --rdg 1,6 --rfg 1,6 --norc --score-min C,0,-1 -p 8 -x "INDEX" (input_file.fastq) > (output_file.sam)

The command runs and produces output, however not exactly what I expected.

Bowtie2 output from command:

How can I change the bowtie2 command to remove perfect alligned sequences that are not the same length as the reference sequences? Or use Samtools to remove the smaller/longer sequences?

Thanks in advance!
