TORONTO, March 28 (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange's main index closed sharply lower on Friday as weakness in the key energy, financials and materials sectors dragged on the benchmark despite gains by BlackBerry maker Research In Motion Ltd RIMM.ORIM.TO.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed down 151.55 points, or 1.13 percent, at 13,254.23. (Reporting by Wojtek Dabrowski; Editing by Peter Galloway)
