What weapon arcs did your ships have? IIRC all your big beams in that 
battle were (F)-arc only (Vector movement rules), so in order to keep a 
chaser under while retrograding you would've had to spend 2 thrust
on rotations each turn to accellerate away from them. If you started on 
even slightly converging vectors, that would've allowed B3-armed ships
"mere" MD parity to catch up fairly quickly.
