i'm not sure what a "grow bag" is, but perhaps there isn't enough room in there for both plants?
unfortunately, at this stage of growth it would be wrong to divide the plants or to even to dig around and look at the roots but you won't really know what is going on with the soil and these two plants root systems until after they are done.
i'd just keep removing any wilted leaves and keep a close eye on the good plant (being careful not to touch the good plant after touching the bad plant). if it looks like it is a disease that is spreading then i'd trim the entire bad plant back and let the good plant keep going.
unfortunately i'm not a grow-bag, greenhouse or cucumber expert so i can't be more certain. i only have wilt problems with squash/cucumbers when it is too wet and cold, once the sun comes out and the rain doesn't wet the leaves as often they do much better. when you water these plants be sure to water carefully and not get the leaves wet.
that's about all that comes to mind... good luck, :)
