Timekeeping in football (soccer) isn't an exact science. There is no timer as such, the time added by the referee is his guideline, he may go slightly over it to allow for other stoppages. The referee will usually end the game when there is no advance of attack to either side, that is usually when the ball is in the middle of the pitch, or when there is no possible way one team will overturn the deficit. You will notice the vast majority of games end just after the goalkeeper takes a goal kick.

What would happened if you wired a 240v ballast and a 120 v ballast into a heavy duty timer?

The timer has to be multi-pole. The ballast must be connected to the load contacts of the timer. If the timer is a 120 Volt timer, the timer has to run on a 120V. circuit. Loads are loads, and as long as you have a multi-load timer you can hook up whatever you want. If the timer only works on a shared power source (load shares the timer supply) you will need to use a contactor on the load side or the timer.
