College Girls Football First 11 can only play 30 minutes each half!

CaptureIt seems the College boys Football First 11  teams (and no doubt other senior boys teams) play 45 minutes each way but the girls only play 30 minutes. Why? Even on a floodlit park?

There was probably some good reason 50 years ago but in 2014?  I would love to hear some theories that I can pass on to the girls.

FOOTNOTE: I coached a First 11 Junior team that lost after 30 minutes each way in a penalty shootout… which got me thinking as to why we only played 30 minutes each way.
