The USC Beaufort men's golf team dropped a narrow decision to rival SCAD Savannah in a dual match Friday at the Club at Savannah Harbor, carding a team score of 300 but falling by five shots.
The Sand Sharks' best score didn't count toward their team total, as freshman Bradford Curren posted a 1-under-par 71 playing as an individual to earn medalist honors.
Travis Cashion and Brian Langley led USCB's scoring players with matching 73s.
Billy Nisbet and Julian Dinsing each shot 72 to lead the Bees.
The teams will complete the home-and-home series with a dual match at Oldfield Golf Club on March 1.
