TORONTO Jan 28 (Reuters) - Rising energy and materials shares, surging on higher oil and gold prices, kept Toronto's main stock index in positive territory on Friday, fending off a selloff in other areas in the wake of unrest in Egypt.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed up 27.38 points, or 0.2 percent, at 13,437.58.
