TORONTO, April 29 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index made a late-day dash higher on Friday as rallying resource issues overcame a plunge in BlackBerry maker Research in Motion RIM.TO.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially finished 50.39 points, or 0.36 percent, higher at 13,944.79. Nine of its 10 sectors advanced.

The information technology group was the lone decliner, down 3.09 percent, as RIM dropped more than 14 percent after it issued a profit warning late on Thursday. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; editing by Peter Galloway)
