Rugby Union: Wes is last-gasp hero.
The home side looked on the verge of pulling off a dramatic upset as they pulled themselves to within one point of the Premiership champions.
Three-quickfire penalties from Barry Edgar and tries for Gavin Walsh and Andy Rushforth saw GHK rally to 22-21 with 15 minutes left.
But Henry, pictured, silenced the Braidholm crowd with his winning score which Murray Strang converted to secure the 29-21 victory. While GHK now look doomed, Watsonians completed their amazing escape act from the foot of the table as they swept aside Hawick 43-33 at Mansfield Park.
The Myreside men needed a win to end their relegation fears and tries from Gavin Brown, Andy Turnbull, Colin Gregor, Stuart McAllister and Alan Nash earned them the vital points.
Boroughmuir made sure of third spot in the table by beating fourth-placed Melrose 30-20. Tries from Kevin Brown, Andy Hadden, Alan Seivewright and Rory Couper helped the home side bag the bonus point
