NL10z AKs is a trouble hand

Blinds: $0.05/$0.10 (6 Players) BN: $18.18
SB: $10.73 (Hero)
BB: $10.00
UTG: $10.00

Preflop ($0.15) Hero is SB with A K
3 folds, BN raises to $0.25, Hero raises to $1.00, BB folds, BN calls $0.75
Flop ($2.10) 9 K 2
Hero bets $0.70, BN calls $0.70

Hero checks, BN bets $2.00, Hero calls $2.00
River ($7.50) 9 K 2 Q 3
Hero checks, BN bets $4.55, Hero

Flop: I range c-bet King-Mid-Low boards, even in their two-tone variety.

Turn: The Qc equalizes much of the range advantage that I had OTF. KQ moved ahead, JT made a straight, and BDFDs now turned 9 outs. I also hold these hands, however I am arriving at this turn with all of my pre-flop range, whereas the PFC's range got filtered towards these holdings. Hence I perceive this to be a good card for the PFC (and a bad card for the 3-bettor who prefers static board runouts) and obt to check.

River: Not sure if I can find a call here out of two issues. First, I don't see any value bets that we beat (I would be surprised to see KJs betting here but maybe I'm just a nit). Second, a lot of his missed FDs that could in theory bluff this river turned a SDV hand that prefers checking rather the bluff-betting (AQs, QJs, QTs, Q8s). Do we call this off?
