Getafe fights back for 2-2 draw with Real Sociedad

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) -- Getafe erased a two-goal deficit to earn a 2-2 draw at home with Real Sociedad in the Spanish league on Sunday.

Sociedad went ahead courtesy of headed goals by striker Imanol Agirretxe following crosses by Carlos Vela in the fourth and 16th minute, respectively.

But Getafe rallied and striker Ciprian Marica halved the difference in the 28th.

Sociedad goalkeeper Claudio Bravo denied Pedro Leon twice before the former Real Madrid midfielder volleyed in Diego Castro's cross in the 52nd minute after teammate Borja Fernandez had hit the post.

Getafe's resurgence was undermined, however, when Borja picked up his second booking in the 61st, leaving the hosts with 10 men.

Sociedad remained in sixth place, while Getafe stayed in the pack occupying the middle of the table.
