MONTPELIER, Vt. -- It was a short but productive trip for the North Adams SteepleCats Sunday at the New England Collegiate Baseball League All-Star Game.   The contest was rained out in the third inning with the Northern Division All-Stars leading, 1-0.   Nicholas Payero had a big hand in keeping the Southern stars down, retiring the side in order in the first as the SteepleCat earned the start in the late-season classic.   Hoosac Valley graduate Matt Koperniak went 1-for-2 at the plate with a single in his first at-bat, and North Adams' Scout Knotts had a productive out, driving a deep fly ball to center field to move a runner in the first.   Meanwhile Taconic
