We present a short proof of the following known result. Suppose $X, Y$ are finite connected CW-complexes with free involutions, $f \colon X \to Y$ is an equivariant map, and $l$ is a non-negative integer. If $f^* \colon H^i (Y) \to H^i (X)$ is an isomorphism for each $i>l$ and is onto for $i=l$, then $f^{\sharp} \colon \pi^i_{eq}(Y)\to \pi^i_{eq}(X)$ is a $\mbox{1-1}$ correspondence for $i>l$ and is onto for $i=l$.
