LOL. If they were a match they would've just charged in on the crippled Enterprise in "Elaan of Troyius"
Which they eventually did.

You're forgetting that the whole point of sabotaging the ship in the first place was so that Enterprise' destruction would look like an accident. Shooting them down with disruptor fire was an unavoidable plan-B.
If you're calling the two meek high warp passes at the Enterprise to test whether she could fight "charging in" then, No. They did not.
Only the first charge was "meek" and the intent of that was to get Enterprise to engage its warp drive and thereby blow itself up.

ALL of the other passes were attack runs; the Klingons fired at them every time, chipping away at their defenses. Kirk was able to overcome them by playing possum and then smacking them with torpedoes when they dropped their guard.
