    Questions

    Hi,

    CARLOS VELA bagged the equaliser as Arsenal were held to a draw by Hangzhou Greentown.

    What does "bagged" mean here, does it mean "get"? And what does "were held to" mean here? Does it mean "forced to a draw"?

    Thanks a lot

    Not a teacher only a native.

    Yes, 'bagged' in this context means got. 'Carlos Vela got the equaliser as Arsenal were held to a draw by Hangzhou Greentown.'
