TORONTO, March 25 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index closed lower on Wednesday as a slide in oil prices shook the weighty energy sector while disappointing debt auctions rattled U.S. stocks and hurt sentiment in Canada.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed down 38.59 points, or 0.44 percent, at 8,810.80. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; editing by Rob Wilson)
