With the win, the Express improved to 7-1 overall - 6-1 on the road.
Ancilla took a 1-0 lead just 10 minutes into the game on a direct free kick just outside the box before Adane Spence tied the game up in the 35th minute - on an assist from Martin.
The intense game was then scoreless until the 76th minute when Martin scored on an indirect free kick from Agustin Bonjour.
Bjion Campbell provided some breathing room for the Express with a goal in the 84th minute on another assist - a throw in - from Bonjour.
The Express are now off to their best eight game start since the 2007 team started 7-0-1. They are scheduled to travel to Cuyahoga Community College on Wednesday for a 4 p.m. matchup.
