St Neots sprang a surprise at Kingsthorpe Mill to reach their third cup final of the season.
St Neots started well on a very heavy pitch and took the lead after 16 minutes when Jon Hall cut in to cross for Andy Sincock to fire home.
Five minutes before the break the visitors doubled their advantage when good work by John Bitting set up Ben Cole to fire home at the near post.
Two minutes later Spencer were back in the game, Paul Pickering scoring from a corner.
Spencer piled on the pressure in the second half but failed to break through a determined Saints back line, and when the home side were reduced to ten men a quarter of an hour from time their chances quickly evaporated.
