xscout brought up a nice trick that I was going to mention - the use of the camelback as a back coolant, not just to drink. Even for short games the added weight would be more than offset if the water was cold enough to help keep your body temp down. The use of gel packs is also a good trick, they are lighter & stay colder longer. They can be placed in the mesh hydration pouch instead of a bladder, but I don't know how well they'd work if placed in another pouch like on the chest, almost too much material between it & your skin - worth a try though.

You bought the brand, not my allegiance.

I fill it up with water the night before and just leave it in the fridge. After about 6 hours of ballin', it does get warm due to time/body heat. The field I play at most of the time does sell chilled gatorade and I start stocking up on that about 2 hours to close and I'll dump out the water and fill the bladder with about a liter of gatorade.
