It's a terrible beat on the river true,but there's nothing you can do about that.

What you CAN do something about is to not check on the flop here. You hit your set...what better hand can fall? It's 2NL wopke,players will call value bets all the way down with much,much worse than a lower set. Many Ax hands will call a board like this at least to the river. You want to be building the pots at 2NL,a 2/3's pot raise here off the flop would be just about right. That sets you up to build the pot more on the turn and if he's still following you can make a substantial raise on the river and most players at 2NL,having followed that far,will call with any piece of the pot.

This hand you're not seeing that because he thought HE was setting YOU up with his check. But you can't think the guy hit as big as he did here. You want to build the pot in pieces,one fell swoop is too easy for a lesser hand to walk away from.
