Grenada steals a point in thriller against Getafe

Guillherme Siqueira converted a pair of penalty kicks, including a stoppage-time equalizer, on Monday as Grenada and Getafe battled to a thrilling 2-2 draw at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

Getafe opened the scoring in the 19th minute when Adrian Colunga swung in a free kick from the edge of the penalty area and Juan Rodriguez was able to use his right foot to redirect it into the net.

The visitors were awarded a penalty kick later in the first half after Getafe's David Abraham handled a ball in the box and Siqueira stepped to the spot and buried it into the top left corner to level the score in the 28th minute.

Just before the break, the hosts took the lead back when Colunga provided some more fantastic service with an overhead pass for Paco Alcacer, who narrowly stayed onside and put it past Grenada keeper Roberto three minutes before the interval.

Grenada pushed for an equalizer for much of the second half and caught a break when a cross into the box struck Getafe's Rafa on the arm resulting in a second spot-kick.

With time winding down, the left-footed Siqueira stepped up again and calmly dispatched it into the lower left corner of the net just moments before the final whistle to steal a point for his side.

Grenada move out of the relegation zone with 17 points, while Getafe remain in 11th place on 25 points.
