Stability for matchings in regular hypergraphs

We consider a hypergraph analogue of the basic fact that every regular bipartite graph has a perfect matching. A theorem of Aharoni implies that every regular tripartite hypergraph $H$ with $n$ vertics in each class has a matching of size at least $n/2$, and moreover this bound is tight. We prove a stability version of this statement, showing that if $H$ has matching number close to $n/2$ then it is correspondingly close in structure to the extremal configuration.
