Churches dominated in every race of the Sweet 16 in our Ultimate Pittsburgh Pierogi Bracket, presented in partnership with KDKA-TV and the Pittsburgh Pierogi Festival.

The only two non-churches to advance to the Elite 8 — Our Place Homemade and Pittsburgh Pierogi Truck — weren’t pitted against religious organizations in the Sweet 16. Here’s how the races went down.

  • 63 percent of votes went to Epiphany of Our Lord (offing St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Church). For the second round in a row, Epiphany of Our Lord earned the titles of the contender with the most votes and winner of the most voted-in race.

Quadrant 2 (lower left)

  • 80 percent of votes went to Holy Trinity Ukrainian Catholic Church (ousting Butterjoint)
  • 81 percent of votes went to Holy Family Parish (nixing City Fresh Pasta)

Quadrant 3 (upper right)
