In compiling the results for this website, I came across a handful of games that were listed as postponed.
Now, we all know the difference between a postponed game and a canceled game, right? A canceled game won’t be made up; a postponed game will be.
Not everyone understands or acknowledges this difference. Even so, a few games exist in this database as “postponed” instead of canceled, but no make-up game or result is noted. Perhaps these games were postponed in hope that the game would be made up but later was not. Often, such failures in scheduling weren’t acknowledged by the various newspapers in the state — the games just disappeared. Or they were replayed and the game result was never published. I’m not sure.
These are those games:
O30/1923 Cheyenne Central Wheatland postponed-snow
S24/1937 Lovell Sheridan postponed-infantile paralysis
O31/1941 Pavillion Byron postponed
N5/1956 Lusk Newcastle postponed
O25/1957 Huntley Chugwater postponed-bad field
O8/1993 Hill City (SD) Upton postponed-snow
N3/1922 Basin Cody ppd-snow
O2/1942 Deaver-Frannie Cowley ppd.
O9/1942 Byron Deaver-Frannie ppd.
O16/1942 Gillette Midwest ppd-snow (played each other later but had scheduled two games against each other that year)
O16/1942 LaPorte (CO) St. Mary’s ppd.
S29/1943 St. Mary’s Albin ppd (played each other later but had scheduled two games against each other that year)

Seven games that were listed as postponed I’ve been able to figure out that yes, indeed, they were rescheduled and played. The listing for those seven games already existed in the database; however, the originally scheduled games, listed here, have been removed.
S12/1952 Sundance Newcastle ppd-polio
O11/1957 Cheyenne Central Rawlins postponed-flu
O17/1957 Big Horn Moorcroft postponed-flu (this game was rescheduled but not played)
S17/1965 Thermopolis Buffalo ppd-snow
S17/1965 Riverton Worland ppd-snow
S17/1965 Torrington Rock Springs ppd-snow
S17/1965 Laramie Natrona ppd-snow
